A quick glance and I can say that based on the color scheme, it is a perfect project for the special man in your life. The color scheme of this Relaxed Guy Throw is classy, very masculine. The recipient of this throw will really appreciate your efforts because it is a labor of love. Perfect gift for Father's Day, or dad or brother or son's birthday.

A relaxed "hubby" needs a nudge to help more!

I don't understand symbol in instructions for round 2 of border Round 2 Ch 4 (counts as dc and ch-1), dc, ch 1 2 times in corner st, skip next sc, dc in next sc, ch 1 to corner st, dc, ch 1 3 times in corner st repeat from around, work between along last side to first corner, slip st to 3rd ch of beginning.....

I love this pattern. Super easy and looks great. I made this one for my son and liked it so much I changed to the Mirage Camo colors for a blanket for our camper.

Yes I like this for a gentleman. In fact, I'm making one now, using urban camo yarn.

Sure, I'd make it. My husband loves to cover up with an afghan when he feeds chilly while watching TV.

I think I would make it, but like others, change the colors, also I would have to make it wider and longer.

In his favorite colors, of course I would!

Yes, I would. I think it would work great for a man cave.
