3 ball basic cascade
3 ball reverse cascade
In a cascade done with outside throws, the balls are thrown on the outside of the pattern and caught on the inside. Each throw goes over the top of the incoming ball. This pattern is called a reverse cascade or a full reverse, because this is what a video of a normal cascade looks like if you play it in reverse.

A pattern where one hand does outside throws and the other does inside throws is called a halfshower.

Other patterns with a combination of inside and outside throws include tennis (a basic cascade with an outside throw every third throw) and reverse tennis (a reverse cascade with an inside throw every third throw).
