Blanket Sizes
Blanket Sizes and Types:

Preemie Blankets
A very small blanket (12" x 12") or (12" x 18") can easily wrap a premature baby, but in many hospitals they prefer a (30" x 40") or (36" x 36") blanket used to cover the entire bassinet. Crochet / Knit patterns will require approx. 24-32 oz. of yarn depending on the pattern and size of hooks/needles.  Special requirements regarding fabric or yarn is needed for Preemie Blankets - Before you make a Preemie Blanket - Contact Us to ensure that the blanket meets the special requirements.
Baby Blankets
Pre-printed panel quilts make excellent baby quilts and they are very easy to finish.  They are already made of quilted fabric so all they need is a binding sewn around the edge.  One yard of fabric (36" x 36") or (36" x 42") makes an acceptable sized baby quilt. Crochet / Knit patterns will require approx. 24-48 oz. of yarn depending on the pattern and size of hooks/needles.
Teen Blankets
In order for a blanket to be comfortable for a teenager, it needs to be at least two yards in length.  Since polar fleece is 50% wide, a 2-yard piece of fleece makes a nice blanket for a teenager. Crochet / Knit patterns will require approx. 64-120 oz. of yarn depending on the pattern and size of hooks/needles.
Toddler Blankets
An average sized blanket is (40" x 60"). A cut of fabric is usually 40-42 inches wide -- so 1 2/3 yards of a 40-42 wide fabric is perfect size for a toddler blanket. Crochet / Knit patterns will require approx. 40-64 oz of yarn depending on the pattern and size of hooks/needles.

Fleece Blankets
Pieces of polar fleece may be purchased and it takes very little work to create a blanket.  Serging or hemming, or cutting a fringed edge - which takes no sewing at all, may finish off the edge.  This material can be used for any size blanket.
Receiving Blankets
A piece of flannel fabric can be stitched into a receiving blanket by hemming the edge.
