For some reason, when it comes to things like home decorating, many people assume the presence of a crochet afghan means a woman's touch. That simply is not true. Crochet blankets are a gender neutral piece of decor, and men like to be warm, too! Of course, not every man will want a pink, flowery pattern but this Squares in Stripes Throw? That they might enjoy. This simple, sporty throw is entirely modern, and would look at home draped on the back of just about anyone's couch, no matter who they are.
