As a child in Sunday School we took colored pieces of construction paper and learned the story of salvation through the representation of each color.
I have taken each of these colors and various stitch patterns to create a “Colors of Salvation Afghan”.
Each stitch and color represents a segment of the story of God’s love, forgiveness, and promise of Heaven.
Many others joined in 2 years ago for the first Colors Of Salvation Knit/Crochet-along. It was so much fun I want to do it again. This time, with videos demonstrations of each set of stitches.
Whether you knit or crochet, this project is a fun way to advance your skill by learning new stitch combinations; review scripture while working through the project.
This project is very versatile. You can make a full size afghan or a smaller lapghan. One person commented she made it smaller and stitched the sides to make a tote.
Once you learn the stitch patterns, find your favorite and make that pattern into a scarf.
I will post a video demonstration of the first set of stitches on Saturday, Sept 17, then new pattern stitches each month. The colors will be worked as follows:
- Sept: Orange
- Oct: Gold
- Nov: Purple
- Dec: White
- Jan: Blue
- Feb: Green
- Mar: Black & Red Edging and Seaming
