I want to give you a little early Christmas present. I made this scarf for my sister's Christmas gift, and since I had so much fun making it, I thought you all might too! It's the perfect thing for that quick last-minute gift you need since it works up fast with bulky yarn on big needles, just what we knitters need this close to Christmas. The name came about because as I was knitting it, I went through some times when I needed waves of grace from Jesus. Now this is my first pattern I've ever written, so I'm sorry if there's any mistakes. I came across a cable pattern in an old book, and I'm not sure if this is exactly the same, but it's close. The instructions were vague, so I just made stuff up as I went along.
Waves of Grace Scarf
This pattern is for personal use only. Do not reproduce this pattern elsewhere.

Cast on 26 sts.
*slip the first stitch of every row, this just makes a nice neat edge.
Row 1: knit
Row 2: purl
Row 3: make sure to slip the first stitch of this row also *sl next 3 sts on cable needle and leave at front of work, k3, k3 sts from cable needle, k6* repeat till 1st left, k1
Row 4: purl
Row 5: knit
Row 6: purl
Row 7: make sure to slip the first stitch of this row also *k6, sl next 3 sts on cable needle and leave at back of work, k3, k3 sts from cable needle* repeat till 1st left, k1
Row 8: purl
Row 9: knit
Row 10: purl
Repeat rows 3-10 until the scarf measures 54 inches long, or however long you want to make it. I just kept knitting until I used up most of the yarn. I bound off after row 10 by just turning to the next row and bound off in knit stitch, however, to make it look a bit better I would probably bind off in purl stitch on a row 10.
Well, that's it. I sure hope you all enjoy making this scarf, and please let me know what you think!
