Carnival Scarf

Eyelash yarn is a lot of fun to work with and to wear. The yarn is made of a central core with little strands of fiber coming off of it that look sort of like eyelashes.
Different brands of eyelash yarn have different lengths of eyelashes. Some products have varying lengths within the same product. Some have very solid masses of eyelashes, while some are a little more sparse. Pick a yarn that you like the look of for this quick and easy scarf project.
