well on the first end, i put three in the end chain and then worked up as i went around. my first row was treble crochet, and that helped to fan it out. but later on i worked up, adding 2 in a few stitches around the end, then three or at the very end to widen the curve. the ends are actually the only part that doesn't curl! ha! i think i overdid the increases though. the second scarf will be better. sorry for the slowness and general crappiness of the picture. but until i get a better one (and fix the curling of course) here is what it looks like. note the curling on the right hand side Cry  ...

2-take out the staple from the matches, unfold, and measure the size the pictures will need to be. leave a little room at the top for the fold not to interfere.

4-re-staple. ta da!
