Infinity Granny Square For Birthday Blankets

Today I finished my third crochet Infinity Granny Square Blanket. My goal was to make a blanket for each of my children’s birthdays this year and that is now completed! I posted about the one I made for my son HERE.

It took 15 days to finish the blanket for my teen daughter that is turning 14 next month and about three weeks for the one I made for my soon-to-be six-year-old.

My teen daughter requested a green and purple for her granny blanket and did pick out the yarn herself online from JoAnn since the color she wanted were out of stock locally.

My youngest daughter requested specifically a heart on her blanket. So with that in mind, I worked a granny heart in the center and changed the stripes of colors. She chose Big Twist Rose, Aqua, White, and Lilac.

The blankets didn’t take too long to work up. I used a 5.50mm hook and Big Twist Value yarn from Joann on both. Each blanket took 6 skeins total and is roughly 50×50 inches and diagonally 70 inches in size.

First Infinity Granny Square Blanket

This weekend I finished up an Infinity Granny Square Blanket. I learned how to do this particular technique from the Youtuber “Play Hooky with Me“, if interested, you can find the video here.

Orange and Blue are the favorite colors of my son. I used Red Heart Super Saver Blue and Pumpkin. Two skeins were blue and 3 orange. The blanket is 50×50 inches and diagonally 70 inches. The hook I used is 5.5mm which is also a US- I/9.

He is very pleased with his blanket. It is perfect to throw atop his other covers on his bed at night or to use to cover his body when watching tv or gaming. It is an open style but my son runs warm so it is perfect for him. I highly recommend giving this blanket style a try if you haven’t!
