How big is an Afghan blanket?
There are three basic sizes for crochet blankets: afghan, lap blanket, and baby blanket. Traditionally, full-size, crochet afghan patterns measures about 50″ by 65″. The lap blanket is about 35″ by 40″. And the perennial favorite, the baby blanket, measures about 25″ by 30″.
How many skeins of yarn do I need for a blanket?
For a full-size blanket, you will need quite a bit of yarn, probably around 13-18 balls or skeins of yarn. Usually, afghans are very colorful, so you may have one skein of each and, if it’s it’s really colorful, that can add up. If the blanket only has one or a few colors, it may only be 10 skeins.
