The Official Knitting Pattern of Holy Week

The Crown of Glory

Then Pilate took Jesus and had him scourged.
And the soldiers wove a crown out of thorns
and placed it on his head,

and clothed him in a purple cloak, and they came to him and said,
"Hail, King of the Jews!"
[Jn 19, 1-2]

And for the more POD:
The knitters of Fair Isle, inheriting their designs from Spanish sources, still preserve the Catholic tradition that made Christendom. We can still find on the sweaters they knit 'The Sacred Heart', 'The Rose of Sharon', "The star of Hope' and 'The Crown of Glory'. [source]
