If you need to figure out stitch counts to make these sizes, this is solely dependent on you. Typically, I chain until I hit the width or length of the project I want by measuring it directly to my bed or an established blanket.

If you are working with multiple sets, you have to figure that out by counting the multiples out as you go. For example, say I want a 70″ wide afghan and I have multiples of 9 + 2. I could from 1 – 9 as I chain over and over and over. Once I get to the length I need, I just add 2 at the end. This way, I can ensure my multiple counts will be right without the worry about a calculator.

    • Hello, thank you for this comprehensive list. Is there a standard size for round afghans? Thank you,

  1. Thanks for this Mikey put my mind at rest, remember reading you had done a post about Afghan sizes so happy this was so easy to find on your supper awesome sight, now I can get on with creating my two tone blanket best part is no frogging! I know supper excited be I. Thank you one more your the best.

  2. I really need some help. I am making two afghans 10 ounces each making an afghan 60 x 72 inches with an I hook. It is a pattern that starts in the corner. I don’t think I have enough yarn? I am estimating 6 10 ounce skeins for this each afghan. Hope it doesn’t take that much?

  3. I always find that my chain stretches out as the blanket builds, as a beginner I find it easier to work by chain length rather than inches because of the stretch. would you be able to help me figure out what a chain should be for a blanket for a double/full with a bit of hang using a 11 hook with Bernat Baby Blanket yarn. I make my blanket fairly loose. thank you so much

  4. What size is the one that you have shown? you have also suggested how many balls to buy, for what size is that? i don’t want to start and run out of wool because the blanket is too big?

  5. Oh my goodness, Mikey! My heart jumped for joy when I saw that you offered all these sizes in a PDF format for download! I can’t thank you enough! Did I say Thank You? THANK YOU!!! I shall make it a point to have this printed off to put in my go bag with my crochet work! I may even have it laminated so I can always have it close at hand and it will last me a good long time! THANK YOU!!!
