Laurie’s Winter Infinity Granny Rectangle Crochet Blanket

Hello and Welcome!

At Ruby Grace we love to inspire folks. I meant that’s at the core of our mission statement right? But we also love to be inspired. One of the perks of the job is being a part of the fiber arts community and seeing what people come up with!

Today’s blanket was inspired by a friend of ours, Laurie Richardson. Lawdy. What that girl does with chevron’s makes my crochet, color junkie heart just swoon. She really is amazing. You should check out her work  in the Daisy Farm Crafts Facebook group.

Inspired by one of our favorite makers this blanket features winter colors that are sure to become classic!

What is the Infinity Granny Stitch?

The Infinity Granny Square takes the same concept of a traditional granny square and just keeps going! It consists of a cluster of three double crochets (dc, dc, dc in the same space).  

**NOTE** Instead of starting with a ring, this granny starts with a starting chain of 15.


YO – Yarn Over

REP – Repeat

RND – Round

CH – Chain

SK – Skip

DC – Double Crochet

ST – Stitch

SP – Space

DC CL – Double Crochet Cluster

**All stitches and abbreviations are in U.S. Terms.

Gauge: 9 rounds = 4” (10cm)

Crochet hook size I (5.5 mm) or size needed for gauge.

Double Crochet (DC) – YO, insert your hook, YO pull up a loop, YO and pull through 2 loops, YO and pull through remaining two loops.

Double Crochet CLUSTER (DC CL) – Three (3) DC in the same space.

Row Counts

The graphic above is a digital mock up of the finished blanket.

  • **WHITE – 2
  • LIGHT BLUE – 1

Want an easy way to keep track of each row? We sure do, so we include row trackers in our PDF’s! You can download that.  I don’t know about you, but if I don’t have something to physically check off, I spend more time counting and recounting instead of crocheting! 


We have a few tips to help ya out!  You can always do what works the best for you, but these are what we find to be tried and true for us!

  • Try to weave in those ends as you go. Learn will be a lot!
  • Turn! Turning is the easiest way to keep you blanket from getting wonky.
  • After finishing one color, turn it towards you so the back side is now facing you, then rotate it counter clockwise. Start with a new color in any Ch 1 sp. Again, this is awesome sauce for keeping your sides straight!
  • Not every blanket needs a border! Don’t be afraid to skip it. If you edges are straight and consistent, there’s really no need!


As usual I skipped the border, but feel free to add one if you want! Just be sure that you have enough yarn on hand for it.
