About the Inspiration for this Crochet Animal Scarf Pattern:

My inspiration comes from winter-themed children’s clothes which usually have a polar bear on them. The moment I saw the Caron Latte Cake and Lion Brand Go For Faux yarn together in these colors, I knew they would pair perfectly for a winter crochet child scarf pattern! I tried a few different safety eyes and a nose that just didn’t look right so then I decided embroidery was the way to go! I’m very happy with the way this Tunisian crochet pattern turned out. The Lattice Stitch is becoming one of my favorite Tunisian crochet stitches (after Honeycomb of course!)

If you’re looking for a fun crochet skirt pattern to work on, I have just the pattern for you! I created this skirt with some left-over yarn I had. I intended it to be a simple color block skirt so the only stitch used is the Tunisian simple stitch for the skirt itself. Then I decided it would be nice to have some ribbing at the top for a drawstring closure. Before I finished up the skirt, I had an idea to add some textured afterthought pockets and I think that is my favorite part of the design! The Tunisian honeycomb stitch is my absolute favorite of all the Tunisian crochet stitches. I also added some picot edging to add a touch of fancy.

Cinch this side closed in the same way as the other side leaving a small hole. Wrap yarn tightly around mirroring Tunisian simple stitch bands weaving yarn through the center as you go, repeat twice. Place a cinnamon stick in the hole and cinch tight. Tie some twine to add a rustic touch. Make sure to watch this video tutorial to get a better idea of how to do this.

Systemic Injustice, BLM, & A Free Tunisian Crochet Pattern

Systemic Injustice and Systemic Racism Against the Black Community

There is great injustice happening against the Black community all over the US. Overt systemic injustice examples include police brutality, wrongful incarceration, and lynchings. There are also more subtle forms of systemic injustice such as food deserts/ lack of access to healthy foods in and around Black communities, and lack of health insurance making the Black community disproportionately affected by health disparities.

In this post, I take you through some data and visual aids to show you what systemic injustice looks like in the US, my own personal reflections and perspectives, what actions can be taken to fight against this injustice. I also feature some of my favorite Black crocheters and Black designers and finally share a free Tunisian crochet pattern that I came up with inspired by the concept of standing in the gap (which I’ll explain later).

Below are some powerful words inspired by the current situation by a mother of Black children from a Muslim mom group I am a part of:

SYSTEMIC INJUSTICE EXPLAINED – THE DATA

I’ve shared some infographics below that visually represent these issues to create awareness starting with police brutality and wrongful incarceration.

Black individuals are more likely to be fatally shot by police than White individuals.

Black workers have historically earned far less than White workers. There is still a significant wage gap between Black and White American workers.

“Gentrification is a process of changing the character of a neighborhood through the influx of more affluent residents and businesses.” This has led to the displacement of the Black community.

“Cities with the highest levels of black displacement between 2000 and 2010 were concentrated in the South, with nine out of 16 cities with high levels of black displacement located there. Richmond, Charlottesville, Washington, D.C., and New Orleans had the highest percentages of black displacement at the tract level.”

Health Disparities in the Black Community

Black women are significantly more likely to die from a pregnancy-related death when compared with White women regardless of age.

Young African Americans are living with diseases more common at older ages.

African Americans ages 18-49 are 2 times as likely to die from heart disease than whites.

African Americans ages 35-64 years are 50% more likely to have high blood pressure than whites.

Chronic diseases and some of their risk factors may be silent or not diagnosed during these early years. Health differences are often due to economic and social conditions that are more common among African Americans than whites. For example, African American adults are more likely to report they cannot see a doctor because of cost.

*It should be noted that a lot of these risk factors are associated with socioeconomic issues including food deserts and lack of health insurance. These issues are usually a result of policies at the broader level that put the Black community at a disadvantage.

Black Americans were nearly twice as likely as their white neighbors to lack health insurance as recently as 2018.

Source: https://www.businessinsider.com/us-systemic-racism-in-charts-graphs-data-2020-6

A food desert is an area that has limited access to affordable and nutritious food (i.e. supermarkets and grocery stores are far, fast food and convenience stores are the main sources of food).

Food Deserts are more prevalent in the Black community. This leads to food-related health issues such as obesity and other metabolic chronic illnesses.

Source: https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20200411/expert-food-deserts-in-black-communities-partly-explain-coronavirus-vulnerability

Wherever possible, we should try to advocate for socio-economic changes at the policy level to help alleviate some of these health disparities and ensure a better future for the Black community.

Do the research and find out what you can do in your own local community to bring about change whether it’s making a donation or volunteering and working directly with community organizations.

REFLECTIONS AND PERSPECTIVE: Reflecting and Checking my Own Biases

For the past month, I’ve been having an internal dialogue. I’ve been reflecting on how events in my life and my perspective have impacted the larger picture of the systemic injustice my Black brothers and sisters experience.

This is hard for me to admit and to say openly but it needs to be said.
Our South Asian communities have wronged the Black community for generations. I grew up with the stereotype that I should be fearful of Black people because they are aggressive and dangerous. This was reinforced by the media. I also grew up thinking dark skin color meant you were less beautiful/less worthy of love. At that time I didn’t know right from wrong. On the other extreme, I also engaged in cultural appropriation during my high school years because that’s what all the cool kids did. Dressing in baggy clothes and saying things like “that’s so ghetto” “I’m so gangsta” etc.
As I grew up I learned the difference between right and wrong. I learned to love and appreciate my Black friends and their uniqueness and stopped engaging in cultural appropriation.

This is my point. Racism is learned, not something you are born with, but something you learn from your family, your environment, the type of news you follow, and the media you consume.

As a South Asian mom, I want to say it loudly and clearly that my son will not follow this stereotype. I will teach him to love and treat fairly people from the Black community. I will assist in breaking the cycle of racism one step at a time even if it means getting uncomfortable and creating a dialogue about things that may be difficult to talk about.

BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT

The Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement aims to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes.

Stand in the Gap Meaning

Standing in the gap means that you are ready to intervene anytime you see injustice happening in any way. In my wise friend Nkese’s words:

SPEAK UP, WRITE LETTERS, SIGN PETITIONS, VOTE, CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK and REACT. In other words…STAND IN THE GAP people!! STAND👏🏾IN👏🏾THE👏🏾GAP!

-Nkese creator of Cosmic Crochet Creations

I was inspired by this concept and came up with a visual reminder for myself and for others. My latest design is a FREE Tunisian crochet pattern for a wall hanging with a visual reminder to stand in the gap inspired by BLM and the systemic injustice happening every day!
