The Traditional dress of Afghanistan. As a chiefly rural and nomadic population, the Pashtun dress of Afghanistan is typically made from light linens. The dresses are detailed with gold threading, gold beads, and come in many different colors on silk fabrics. These dresses are usually worn to special occasions. Many of the co-ethnic groups who live alongside the Pasthuns in Afghanistan, Tajikistan and Iran have also adopted the dress because of comfort or popular culture.

White people are fucking at it again. This time, it’s the AFGHAN culture that they are stealing and labelling as their own. These special tribal jewelry does NOT belong to you, “bohochic” my ass. These white people from the corners of Australia are selling MY CULTURE, making hundreds and hundreds of money off of them. CULTURE APPROPRIATION IS NOT OKAY. STOP STEALING SHIT THAT ISNT YOURS. STOP DISREGARDING THE ORIGINAL OWNERS OF THESE CULTURAL ITEMS.

crocheted comforter ~

Without doubt, this is my biggest-ever crochet challenge to date (literally and figuratively!). The pattern was created by using one for an afghan and simply increasing the repeat. A lace edging pattern was then used to trim three sides, and it was finished along the top edge with several rows of sc.

The removable shams were crocheted by adjusting the afghan pattern to make the front panels. The backs were made by crocheting two panels (for each sham) of dc and measuring half-horizontal-plus-two-inches of the front panels (to make a four-inch overlap). The pieces were then slip stitched together along the outside edge leaving the overlap section open for pillow inserts.

I hope this encourages your creativity. =)
