This was a great resource in its time, https://www.rugreview.com/stuf/afgwar.htm, Afghan War Rugs: A Subgroup With Iranian Influence An Exhibition of a Variant Type by Ron O'Callaghan.

I do not fully agree with Ron's findings, but his work is interesting. The rugs I have seen, from Afghanistan, with asymmetrical knots, open right, are the new production of patterns originated in western Pakistan. The new rugs from around Sherbergan with yellow fields and maps of only Afghanistan have asymmetrical knots, open right. This pattern, until the recent repatriation of Afghans from the camps in Pakistan, was woven around Peshawar. I propose this knot was learned in the camps and returned to Afghanistan with the repatriated weavers.
