Perfect for sports fans, this Athleisure Striped Throw can be customized to feature your favorite team's colors. If you're not a sports fan, this free crochet throw pattern is just as customizable. The sensible but interesting stripe pattern is beautiful in any color combination, from neutral to vibrant shades.

This easy pattern uses only a couple special stitches including reverse single crochet and the v-stitch, both of which are fairly easy to learn. This is the kind of pattern that makes a great gift, especially for the sports fan who has it all.

 

NOTE: When instructed to work into a V-stitch,
insert hook in space between half
double crochet stitches of V-stitch.

I'm not a sports fan, but love the designs in this Athleisure Striped Throw. You can use the colors you like to make this your own and it looks like this should come out nicely. The pattern is right here on this page and can be printed out. A well written pattern that is easy to understand. Looking forward to making this in the near future. Thank you for sharing this free crochet throw pattern.

Oh so lovely, this Athleisure Striped Throw. Carefully crafted, very beautiful, very appropriate for sports fans or not sports fan. I can't wait to make this. Can be done in colors of your choice.

I'm not a big sports fan but I still love the design of this blanket!

Very nice combination of different stitches and looks. I like the colors too but our teenage son wants it to be in his school sports colors of yellow, black and red. A bit like an angry bumble bee, lol! This afghan is really lovely, though, sol after his is complete I will make another that will be more complementary to the dcor of our family room.

Very nice nautical-themed throw. Perfect for a beach house or any room that has a summer beachy look. The colors work great together to produce a calming and relaxing tone. V stitch is a pretty standard crochet stitch and the pattern is very easy to follow along to. Doesnt require a lot of different colors so that makes it easier.
