Use this page as an easy reference to use when you are crocheting blankets or crochet afghans and want to adjust the pattern to different blanket sizes.
This page and printable blanket size chart will help you out. This blanket sizes chart is similar to our free hook sizes chart. You’ll find the printable at the bottom of this post! 🙂
I hope you enjoy this chart and find it useful when deciding on what size blanket you want to make.
How Blanket Sizes Work in Crochet
Keep in mind these blankets sizes are approximate and do not need to be followed to the exact measurement. For example, If you want to make a blanket but want it to be 35″ x 35″ that is OK and would still be a great receiving, a lap blanket size or stroller blanket.
If you are making a crochet queen size blanket comforter for a bed it may be a different story because you would want to have the perfect amount to cover the bed. Really, it is up to you to decide what is best for your situation. 🙂
Standarad Crochet Blanket Sizes
These are the common blanket sizes for the various uses cases. You will see some patterns deviate from these sizes slightly, and that is usually so that a particular pattern does not get interrupted like a chevron or ripple blanket.

|Baby||42 x 52|
|Throw||52 x 60|
