What is a crochet afghan?
An afghan is a woolen blanket or shawl that is typically knitted or crocheted. These are often referred to as a throw, and are used as blankets for cuddling up on the couch, or draping over the side of a chair. In addition, afghans are often used as warming bedspreads, or as a decoration for the backs of couches.
So, why is it called an afghan? Well as it turns out, afghans is also the term for people who are from Afghanistan. This country is known for its colorful and distinctive textiles, including beautiful carpets, woolen blankets and draperies. This is why the ‘afghan’ became the term for knitted and crocheted blankets.
