Why Are Crochet Blankets Called "Afghans"?
If you've ever made or received a crochet afghan, you might wonder why they aren't just called "blankets" or "crochet blankets," since that's what they are. If you could guess, the name is derived from the country of Afghanistan, which was often the mecca of textile creation in the 1700s. In the 1800s, the word "afghan" was adopted as the common word for "crochet blankets," but it also covers "knitted blankets."
"Afghan" is now the common word for any handmade blankets that are made with yarn. Usually, afghans are just used for decoration or as a throw blanket, but they could be made larger for other purposes. "Graphghan" is another word that is being adopted into crochet language to refer to afghans that have a logo or picture created from the stitching. This is because of the word "graphic" and also because incorporating a picture usually requires a graph for the pattern.
