Crochet blankets are the best thing in the world. Not only are they super cozy and soft, they can be made in so many different styles and for different occasions. No matter what finished look you’re going for, it’s important to get sizing right. If someone asks for a twin size blanket, you want to give them the exact measurements and not worry about it being too big or too small. You wouldn’t want to use more yarn than you actually need! Or what if you wanted to make a baby blanket? Are you going to make a crib sized blanket or a lovey? I’ve created a guide to crochet blanket sizes for anyone who’s ever wondered just how big to make their blanket!
Figuring out Crochet Blanket Sizes
When I started making blanket, I sort of just created a long chain and when I was happy with that, I started my rows. I worked until the felt like the blanket was tall enough and then I bound off. Super quick and simple. But that was a completely unreliable way of working. I had no idea how big the blanket was going to be, so I usually needed to get more yarn midway. I could also never tell people what size to expect of their finished blanket until I actually made, and that didn’t look very professional.
So I looked around at some charts for crochet blanket sizes, and they were helpful for a while. Most of them only referred to baby blankets and things like stroller sizes and loveys though. I needed something to give me information on all crochet blanket sizes in a way that was easy to digest and refer back to over time.
In my crochet blanket sizing guide, I’ve included measurements for 16 different types of blankets. I just have this printed out and included with my other resources for whenever I need it. When a customer asks me to make them a blanket, I can give them an exact size and give them a price calculated from how much yarn I actually need for it. No more undercharging because I gave them a price that didn’t take into account the extra yarn I had to buy!
