8 Free Chunky Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern

Still wondering what size blanket you should make for a baby? It really depends on your purpose. Pediatricians recommend that there is nothing in the baby’s crib until they are 1 year old.

I used a 29 x 35 in blanket for over the car seat when we were out when it was cold and a 20 in to cover my little girl in the car seat. I didn’t really use any other blankets besides that.

You might wander if a chunky or super chunky blanket would work. In my opinion you could use it as a cover for the car seat or tummy time on the floor but it would probably be too thick and heavy otherwise. A chunky blanket would make a great gift for when they were a little older.

American Standard Baby Blanket Sizes

  • 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)
  • Crib: 45 in x 60 in (114.3 cm x 152.4 cm)

Of course, these sizes are just standard baby 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.
