Crochet Afghan Size Chart

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission.
Here’s how it works.

Over the past few years I have collected some commons afghan and blanket sizes to make it easier to design projects to certain dimensions.

These sizes are meant as a starting point. When you are designing an afghan, or a blanket, you can pick a size and aim to be close to it.

Your finished project does not have to be exactly the same size as indicated.

When you see finished afghans and blankets available online, they usually vary slightly in size from one manufacturer, to the next.

This is the same with crocheted blankets. Some stitch patterns that are used must have a certain number of stitches to work. This will cause small variations in the finished length and width of the project.

TIP: Depending on the yarn you are using, your blanket can become extremely heavy. If you have trouble with your arms it is best to try to support the project so your arms are not holding the full weight of your blanket as you work.

  1. I want to make a king size afghan in the basic single stitch using #4 weight yarn. Can you tell me how much yarn I need. Have looked at dozens of patterns but can’t find one in this weight or stitch. Thank you for any help. Cecelia
