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 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 count will be right without worry of a calculator.

Blanket Sizes

I have given approximates saying ‘square’ to give an idea. You can use the information to make rectangular afghans but the minimum width recommendation is given below.
