Colors of Salvation Knit/Crochet-along


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

You can download the pattern at:
