    You’ve probably seen it on Ravelry already but in case not – here’s how my scarf turned out:

    This was a quick and easy pattern even for a beginner like me, I even used 2 colors: a chocolate brown on the base chain and 1st row and on row #5 with a wheat color for rows 2-4 and it came out absolutely beautiful!! Im sending it to my mother for a birthday gift and it makes me look talented lol Thanks for a great pattern.

    Hi Denise,
    Really pleased yours turned out so well – it sounds lovely – I might have to try out a 2 coloured version myself!

    Hello!!
    i’m an internet taught crocheter, i’m having a hard time fiiguring out what a 2trtr stitch is. Is it 2 tr in the same space? thanks :)

  10. November 14, 2008 1:17 pm

    Hi Pepina,

    2trtr means 2 treble trebles into the same stitch. In US crochet terminology, a trtr is called a double treble (dtr).

    To make a treble treble stitch: yarn over 3 times then insert hook into stitch, yarn over and pull through stitch (5 loops now on hook), yarn over and draw through 2 loops (4 loops left on hook), yarn over and draw through 2 loops (3 loops left on hook), yarn over and draw through 2 loops (2 loops remaining), yarn over and draw through final 2 loops.

    Hope that makes sense!

    Pepina – I think it might possibly have been a typo that confused you. I’ve corrected the pattern above but if you downloaded the pdf (which I’ve now removed) please ignore and refer to the pattern above. Sorry for any confusion. I think my brain must have got a little fried translating the pattern from UK terms to US ones!

    Thank you so much for this pattern. I got busy on it right away with some varigated pink and brown baby yarn I had. I used an “F” crochet hook. It turned out so cute. I got compliments on it and directed them to your pattern online.
    Lots of cascade scarfs for Christmas this year!
    Sincerely,

    Thanks Jolene – you’re very welcome. Glad your scarf turned out so well. I find it amazing to think that people on the other side of the world will be wearing a design I came up with in my living room in Wales!

    Hi! I want to make this scarf it’s just so lovely! But I don’t have an L hook.. can a K or N hook work? L hooks are hard to come by in the states. Thanks!

  18. December 19, 2008 5:59 pm

    Hi Rene,

    Yes, you could switch hook sizes – really depends on what yarn you’re using and how tightly you usually crochet – if you’re using the Sirdar Blur then it might be better to go up a hook size, rather than down (unless you crochet very loosely anyhow), as the smaller hook will produce a tighter fabric and will also mean the scarf is a little narrower. I’d try making a small swatch using each hook and see which you like best – the tighter or looser fabric. I think it’s just a case of experimentation! :)

    Just had a look on ravelry at some of the projects using this pattern and people have used a variety of hook sizes – one person even used a H hook – so I shouldn’t worry too much. Just make sure you swatch before hand so you have an idea how the fabric will look.

    Good luck – let me know how you get on!

    I am not familiar with the stiches dtr or trtr or trc. I am an experienced crocheter;however I have never seen a pattern with these terms. Do you know the stich in American terms?? This is a beautiful scarf that my daughter would like me to make. Could you help me with the stiches I have mentioned?

      dtr is when you yarn over 2 times around the hook then insert the hook in the next stitch and pull over; now you have 4 loops on the hook, yarn over pull through 2 then yarn over and pull through the rest 2
      trtr is the same but you yarn over 3 times the hook, with the next stitch you end up with 5 loops on the hook, then pull through 2 at a time

    As a 60 year old “Out of the Closet Crocheting Man,” I try to keep my eyes open for patterns for my 16 year old niece. Having never been a 16 year old girl, my impression of just what such a young lady would like, in this day and age, is limited. Further, bearing in mind my younger brother’s constant concern about what is appropriate attire for such a lovely young lady, and she is lovely, and being keenly aware of the mindset of 16 year old boys, both of us having been those, albeit many years ago finding something which meets all the constraints is a rarity. When I came across your scarf through a link on allfreecrochet.com I knew I had found a hit. We all reside on the coast of South Texas, so the need for a scarf designed primarily for warmth is something nigh-on useless. We can and do often wear t-shirts, shorts and flip-flops while most of our fellow citizens are bundled every way possible, we seldom need more than sweats as our heavy winter-ware. I firmly believe your “Cascade Scarf” meets all the challenges. Thank you for sharing it.

    I am a beginner and I tried to make this pattern, but it did not turn out as curly as the sample picture. I am not sure what I am doing incorrectly, but I have a couple of questions about the directions.

    After the chain of 170, am I suppose to add a turning chain? It did not say to like the other rows do, so I did not on my first attempt.

    Also, I wanted to confirm that on the rows the stich count. Row 2 for example, is it 1 double stich, 1 single stich, then 2 double stiches, then 1 single stich and repeat?

    Or do the numbers signify the step number and not the stich count. I did as stich count, so I did 1 double stich, 1 single stich, then 2 double stiches, then 1 single stich and repeat.

    Any information would be helpful.

    Thank you

    Veronica

    I loved this concept. I decided I wanted to crochet the scarf for my niece, but it didn’t work so well with the yarn I used – Wendy Peter Pan, with a sparkly strand. So, having done a test of a short length, I adapted it, working the first two rows on the chain base like you did, then the third row was two double trebles (UK) into each stitch, except one into the stitch at the base of the initial four chain. Fourth row was two triple treble (UK) into stitch at base of 5 chain, then alternating 2 triple trebles, 3 triple trebles. This produced a frilly effect I rather liked. I have photos I can send if you send me an email in reply.

    This scarf is so pretty–I love it. I am happy to say that even though I am a beginner, I completed this scarf as my first crochet project. i used a Simply Soft raspberry yarn. I posted about it on my blog, thehomeheart.com and included a picture. Thank you so much for the easy pattern!

    First of all, I would like to say that this scarf is very beautiful and easy to do! It is just great. But I do have a question. I recently discovered that copyright laws extend beyond the actual crochet pattern to the finished product, regardless of who done the actual crocheting. It can only be sold with the authors permission. I have been selling some of the things I have crocheted recently and was wondering if you minded me making a few of these scarves to sell? Not many people where I live crochet anymore, but they love how it looks and I think it could sell well. Is this okay with you?

    i worked the first three rows of the scarf, then started to notice that it was curlier towards the ends than in the middle. I’m not sure why, maybe it’s a tension issue – do you have any ideas or suggestions?

    I have two colours and alternate each row between them. One is plain black and the other a dark grey chenile.

    On row 4, I have done 3 DTR’s in the first stitch and then 1 TRC in the next. This has introduced a slight scalloped effect.

    Brilliant pattern. Easy yes so effective. Can see me having to make more for family and friends – Thank you x
