Purple in the Salvation Colors represents royalty.
Christ was born to be King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The disciples expected him to set up a kingdom here on earth and were bewildered at the events that led to his death. But God had a plan that they could not understand.
Jesus did not wear the robes of royalty here on earth, He did not adorn his hands with diamonds and other jewels. But He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords and preparing a place for us in his heavenly kingdom.
The stitch pattern for knit and for crochet is called diamonds. I thought it appropriate for this color. Diamonds are used to represent commitment in a marriage vow. Jesus has committed His life life for ours.
The patterns chosen here are a bit more difficult than the others. At least for me, they required more concentration than the previous ones. Take your time and watch the diamonds appear in the panel.
