My inspiration for the Asymmetrical Angles Scarf was a scarf I designed for the Opera Art Project with the Edmonton Opera (www.edmontonopera.com) and the Alberta Craft Council Gallery (www.albertacraft.ab.ca). It was based on the Les Contes d’Hoffman Opera, a Victorian Steampunk inspired opera. You can soften the look by changing the colours of the yarns to ivory or a pastel colour or strengthen the Steampunk essence by using black, greys, sepia tones or red. Make them in a cool cotton for the warmer days and add the warmth of merino wool or other fibres in cooler days. I hope you enjoy knitting this design.

The Asymmetrical Angles Scarf pattern has an eclectic feel to the design with a Victorian Steampunk Essence in the Asymmetry. It was popular in this era to add found objects to your clothing as shown in the various clasps I used to accent the scarf. Add 3 clasps to strengthen the look.
The Asymmetrical Angles Scarf Knitting Pattern can be worn with the clasps at the front or to the side for a slightly different look and warmth. I used a 2 strand method to knit this scarf with 2 different worsted weight yarns. (Malabrigo Worsted Merino and Malabrigo Rios hand painted merino wool). You can use most worsted weight yarns including cotton and other fibres.
I am continuing to pattern various designs of my previous work and new designs that will include crochet patterns down the road. Be sure to come back soon to see the latest. I am also working on new pieces of my finished accessories for Fall. Hard to believe when Spring hasn’t technically come here yet. The morning began with -13. Not very Spring like and I am looking forward to the warmer days ahead.
