I make a large number of blankets, for all ages. Quilts, crochet and knitted varieties of different sizes. The ones which cause me most difficulty are for babies.
I don't know about you but I get so confused with all the different options when making a baby blanket.
How big does it need to be to fit a crib? What's a receiving blanket? and I've been asked for a swaddling blanket....
It feels so much pressure and I don't have a ton of strollers and cribs laying about the house waiting for me to measure.
Unlike single, double and queen sized beds which I do have access to.
I did some research and am happy to share these numbers with you below.
Blanket Size Measurement
Lovey 12" x 12"
Security 14" x 17"
Stroller 30" x 35"
Receiving 40" x 40"
Small Cradle 15" x 30"
Large Cradle 18" x 33"
Crib 36" x 54"
Toddler 42" x 52"
Swaddling 48" x 48"
