Wondering, what size should you make your next crochet baby blanket? There are different common baby blanket sizes in both inches and centimeters.
The baby blanket sizes vary by country and taste. This table of baby blanket sizes will give you an idea of what size to make for your next crochet afghan or knitting blanket project.
If you have been wondering what size baby blanket to make in centimeters or inches check out the list below. There are mattress sizes in both centimeters and inches too.
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.
