DID YOU KNOW? The History of Crochet Afghan Patterns
While the word crochet comes from the French word of the exact same spelling meaning a small hook, the word afghan comes from a very different origin. The word afghan actually refers to the country Afghanistan because coverlets, later known as crochet and knit afghans, originated in this country. This word can be traced back to around 1833 where the novelist Thomas Carlyle mentioned the pieces of clothing in his Sarttor Resartus.
These days, however, crochet afghans are less often worn than they are used as smaller blankets to cover up on a chilly day. These newer versions of the afghan come in a variety of shapes and sizes. From crochet afghan patterns that feature granny squares to the more modern and popular ripple afghan pattern, the size of afghans has changed of the years. Crochet afghans made their first appearance in everyday crochet between 1900 and 1930 when the art moved from more delicate, wearable crochet patterns to more practical pieces like the afghan or other household items like pot holders, car rugs, and more.
