The Cascade Super Scarf is a classic, knit-like accessory that is perfect for both men and women! It's simple design allows you to wear it with any outfit and its traditional shape makes it timeless. One thing that may not be so ordinary about it, though, is its length. It's a whopping 10 feet long which means you can wrap it up as much or as little as you want, making it perfect for those frigid mornings and warmer afternoons.

tss: place hook under next vertical bar (continuing to stay on the front side of your work), y/o, pull up a loop
return pass: y/o pull through 1 loop, *y/o pull through 2 loops*, repeat ** across until 1 loop remains
1. When switching colors, always "lock" the yarn by placing the old color in front of the new color.
With color A, chain 25.
Row 1 (RS): place hook into back loop of 2nd ch from hook, y/o, pull up a loop, *place hook into back loop of next ch, y/o, pull up a loop*, repeat ** across, with color B return pass (see notes) --- 25 sts
Row 2: continuing with color B tks across, with color A return pass --- 25 sts
Rows 3: continuing with color A tks across, with color B return pass --- 25 sts
Repeat Rows 2 & 3 until piece measures about 120 in. (304.8 cm), end with a Row 2 repeat
Continuing with color A, loosely slst across and finish off.
With color A yarn, cut 100 14 in. (35 cm) strands of yarn.
With RS facing you, attach 2 strands in each st on both ends of scarf by doing the following:
1. Fold 2 strands in half
2. With hook, go through a st on the scarf, grab the middle of the 2 strands and pull through.
3. Grab the 4 ends and pull them through the "circle" you just make with the 2 strands on the other side.
4. Make sure ends are even and pull 4 strands tight.
Once finished attaching fringe, cut them all to the same length.
Weave in all ends and block if necessary.
