Afghan Sizing Customized For You

How to do you figure out afghan sizes? I have created a formula to help you achieve the chain counts needed to get to the sizes you need. The formula will also calculate stitch sets for those who require a pattern, such as a wave afghan to stay in balance for stitches.

Sizes of afghans have been provided in the equation for those interested to know the standard sizes of crochet afghans. I have included everything from receiving blanket sizes to king size. I have included the drape and non-drape of the afghans for those who are looking for that.

For my calculator, you will need to a measuring tape to give me a few dimensions. Due to everyone having their own gauge for stitching, this formula will adjust to your own tension to provide you accurate details.

    I’m so confused with the calculator, as I follow the instructions. I enter that the height of 3 rows, which is 1.345. But then the box say to only enter ‘Please enter digits only’. Why is it not working for me? What have I done wrong?
