I made this crocheted afghan for my fiance, Paul as an anniversary present to celebrate our 5-year anniversary! It was tough because we live together, so I had to crochet it in secret when he wasn't around. I managed to finish it within about 3 weeks somehow!
Since I am a very beginner crocheter, this afghan is done completely in the double crochet stitch - really simple! The wool that I used is Marble Chunky - shades of gray, brown, beige. I made the blanket in pretty neutral colors not because it is a little more manly, but because it will surely match our decor for years to come!
Paul totally LOVES the afghan - it was a big surprise for him!
