It seems like finding a feminine and lacy crochet pattern can be found in a moment. However, if you are like me, you may have noticed it is hard to find stylish patterns for the male in your life. Make this crochet throw to show him you care with a homemade afghan. Whether he is lucky enough to have a man cave or just that favorite chair, he can use the throw to relax.

Video Tutorials

There are video tutorials near the bottom of this crochet pattern for both the v-stitch and the front post and back post double crochet.

Perfect Homemade Gift

Make one for every guy you know. The blanket can be used for years to come.

This would make a beautiful baby blanket too.

Front Post and Back Post Double Crochet Border

The feel of the edge is just luxurious and it really helped pull the entire design together. I actually planned on adding one more row of the gray heather tweed color; however, as the blanket was progressing, I realized that I liked the white row of front post and back post double crochet as the last row. So…that is the way I made it. When you are making this pattern, you may end up adding one more row on and ending with the tweed color. If you like that as your last row better, please do so. That is what is wonderful about handmade. You put your finishing touches and personal design preferences into what you are creating.

Adding the Border

Weave in ends prior to starting the border. Trim off any excess yarn. Once this is done, you are ready to add the border. It also makes it so much nicer later when you complete the border…there are only a few pieces of yarn that need to be weaved in later and snip off.

Front Post and Back Post Border

FPDC: means that you insert your hook in the front of the post from the previous row DC.

BPDC: means that you insert your hook behind the post from the previous row DC.

This stitch combination creates a nice ribbed stitch look. This border is worked around the blanket 3 times. I will explain the pattern here and there is also a video tutorial on the front and back post double crochet. For those folks that would rather complete this with a photo tutorial, I have that below too.

Ribbed Border Direction:

Begin with the Gray Heather Tweed yarn

Round 1: Starting in one of the corners and chain 3. DC around the entire blanket, working 3 DC into each corner ending with a SL ST into the top CH of the first chain 3.

Change to the White yarn

Round 2: Start with a CH 3. Then go around the blanket again; however, this time, you will work the DC alternating between the front and back post. See more detail below for the corners…

Change back to the Gray Heather Tweed yarn

Round 3: Start with a CH 3. Then go around the blanket again; however, this time, you will work the DC alternating between the front and back post. See more detail below for the corners…

Corners: When you get to the corners, continue to work 3 DC into the middle DC ST from the previous row. However, on the other two stitches from the previous row DCs in the corner – blend those into the FPDC and BPDC. See the photos of the corners to help show the detail.
