As the US transitions from winter to spring, the Cascading Waterfall Wrap is a great transitional accessory. Some days are warm and some days are chilly, and this wrap will create a stylish look while keeping you comfortable.
This design flexed all of my math skills, as it involves a repeat that works well flat, and could probably be translated into the round, but creating a V-shape was a doozy ? Therefore, stitch counts are included in the pattern to help you out ?
The Cascading Waterfall Wrap uses Red Heart Super Saver Stripes to create a subtle striping and color changes over the entire wrap. This wrap would look great in a light solid color and ombre yarns.
This is an intermediate design with an easy to remember repeat, and allows for practice of special foundation stitches similar to the Chevron Sunrise Wrap. And this wrap uses less than 3 skeins of yarn, so there is plenty left over of the third skein for other small projects!

SPECIAL STITCHES & TECHNIQUES
- dc2tog: Yarn over, insert hook into next st, yarn over pull through st, yarn over pull through 2 loops on hook, skip X sts (number of stitches skipped are specified in pattern as dc2tog by sk 3 sts), yarn over, insert hook into next st, yarn over pull through 2 loops, yarn over pull through all 3 loops (decreases 4 stitches together to create the V of the shawl).
- Foundation Valley (fdc-V): YO, insert hook through ch, YO, pull up a loop, YO, pull through 1 loop, YO, pull through 2 loops (2 loops on hook), YO 3 times, insert hook in ch last made, YO, pull up a loop (6 loops on hook), [YO, pull through 2 loops (foundation ch made)] twice (4 loops on hook), YO, pull through 1 loop (chain of next foundation dc made), YO, pull through 2 loops (first portion of next fdc made), YO, pull through 3 loops
- Foundation Corner (fdc-C): YO, insert hook in ch, YO, pull up a loop, YO, pull through 1 loop (chain made), [YO, pull through 2 loops] twice, ch 1, YO, insert hook in last ch made, pull up a loop, [YO, pull through 2 loops] twice (work in same ch for the following fdc)
- Pattern is written in US terms
- Markers are used to mark the corner, and will be moved up each row by placing around the ch-1 or ch-2 space. It is notated as PM within pattern.
- Beginning ch 1 does not count as first st
- Beginning of edging is worked into the sides of each row by the following: 2 sc in each dc, 3 sc in each tr, 1 sc in each sc or hdc
