I don't see what "boards" to use

@bkenn33 5981281 Looks like this is missing a few materials. We will have an editor update this shorting. In the meantime, here is the original link over on iLovetoCreate's site: https://www.ilovetocreate.com/color-me-happy-clamp-technique-scarf Hope that helps! -Kaylee, Editor of FaveCrafts

OMG. This scarf looks amazing. If it wasn't for the simple fact that my tie dye projects never quite turn out right, I would love to make this. Maybe one day...
