Pattern Description:

This scarf was inspired by one of the most famous houses designed by one of the most famous architects--Fallingwater by Frank Lloyd Wright. Like the house built partially over a waterfall, this scarf replicates the clean vertical lines of the house's cantilevered terraces, softened by fringe that represents the flowing water below. The architectural quality of the scarf is emphasized by a strongly angled stitch pattern that also looks like cantilevers and waterfalls.

The pattern is a simple combination of knits and purls, and every other row is worked as presented, knitting the knits and purling the purls.
