I’ve been seeing Native American tribal patterns and designs popping up everywhere recently, from fabric swatches to leggings to blankets. While there is some debate about cultural appropriation, there’s a pretty uniform agreement that purchasing items directly from Native American individuals or tribes is a good thing, and decorating with designs inspired by them is ok.
Many people love the look and feel of Native American blankets, especially when the weather begins to cool down. While there are many places from which you can purchase these blankets, such as Chestnut Hall, you may be interested to know that there are also ways to DIY a blanket, pillowcase, or tablecloth if you really want to go all out.
Stitch & Unwind has a bevy of beautiful crochet and knitting patterns for those of us who love the tribal look and want to try our hand at bringing one or more of these projects to life. You can choose from over twenty-five patterns, from wearable items to kitchen items to living room decor. There’s something for everyone, at every skill level.
Whether you decide to purchase a completed pattern or want to try one of these free ones, the Native American style can be utilized everywhere, for any occasion.
