If it's not 100% acrylic and has a good amount of natural fibers in it, blocking should take care of that.  Wash the scarf according to the ball band directions (I usually ignore them and always go for a gentle soaking in Eucalan and press with a towel to get out the extra water) lay it out flat and pin it if you have to, into the shape and length you're going for.  When it's dry, it should hold the shape just fine.
