echar means to throw something but i wouldn't translate it so literally. I would say the phrase means "I see that they blame you of everything".

This has been explained at length in yesterday's thread.

You're right, "echar" means to throw, ie: in this context, to throw/put the blame on someone.

"cachar" means to understand/to get it, it is a verb widely used in Chile.

culpa de todo te echan

This sentence is just the other way round, so to speak:

te echan la culpa de todo

This would be a more logical word order.

Yes, your first version is correct. Echan is the third-person plural (they blame).

so in this way, tu echas la culpa ( a alguien), right? ok, maybe should be "culpa de todo te echan/ echante", ? I am sorry, my gramar knowledge is very limited, perdoname.
