Afghans are a staple in the crochet world, but they can be a bit tricky to size!

While you can truly make a crochet blanket in any size you choose, we’ve gathered 8 of the most popular measurements for you to use as a guide.

Before you get started:

  • You should consider if a border will be included in your overall size: borders can be a fun way to finish a design, and add extra length and width!
  • Don’t just chain until you get the “right length”: Sizes by pattern repeats may differ, so always make a swatch first to measure!
  • The larger the blanket the more it will weigh, and the more it will stretch: A Twin can easily turn out to be Queen or King size if the yarn weight causes heft!
