Salvation Colors afghan/lapghan – Part 1


This lesson on various colors representing God’s Plan of Salvation is a fun way to learn Scripture and to tell the Salvation story. When you are finished with the project you will have your own witnessing tool at your fingertips.

Each color represents God’s love and desire to spend eternity with us. Salvation is a FREE GIFT, but must be accepted.

Each panel offers a chance to learn a new stitch pattern. I have offered up stitch patterns for a Knit version and for a Crochet version. Both are finished off with crochet edging.

IF YOU ARE NEW TO KNIT OR CROCHET and are not yet ready to try new stitch patterns, work the project using garter stitch (knit every row) and stockinette stitch (knit one row, purl one row) for the knit version and just single, half, double, or triple crochet for the crochet version.  The important thing here is the colors to make your witnessing tool, not the stitch.  Once you are comfortable with the techniques, make another using the stitch patterns. Mix and match the stitch patterns and colors when you remake the project.

Make the panels long enough for an afghan or smaller for a lapghan or child size cover up.

Other project ideas include making shorter strips and planning 3 on each side and still doing the black edging between then using the red to stitch around and make a pillow cover.

Another idea is to make a scarf by working a pattern to desired size, add 2 rows of black do to the next pattern and continue until all colors are used with black row separators. Edge in red.

Materials I used and suggest:

Knitting Needles size 9 for Knit version

Crochet Hook “G” or “H” for both versions

Cable hook for Knit version for the green panel

Yarn needle for both version

1 Skein each color in Red Heart or I Love This Yarn (1 skein of each color made 2 lapghans so would be just right for afghan) WORSTED WEIGHT
