American Standard Baby Blanket Sizes Crochet

  • Lovey: 14 in x 14 in – great for cuddling (35.56 cm)
  • Large Lovey: 20 in x 20 in – great for cuddling and covering a newborn in the car seat (50.8 cm)
  • Preemie Blanket: 18 in x 18 in (45.72 cm)
  • Receiving Blanket: 30 in x 30 in – a great size for a newborn (76.2 cm)
  • Baby Blanket: 29 in x 35 in – a great size for a new baby with room to grow (73.66 cm x 88.9 cm)
  • Swaddling Blanket: 40 in x 40 in- for wrapping a newborn up tight usually made of gauze or flannel (101.6 cm) but a lightweight yarn would work
  • Crib: 45 in x 60 in (114.3 cm x 152.4 cm) – a great blanket size for growing into, toddlers, or a throw for older children

Of course, these sizes are just standard blanket sizes and you wan make them to fix your needs and size. My size choice also depends on how much yarn I have left and the repeat of the pattern.

I hope this helps you decide what size of baby blanket to crochet.
