Baby blankets vary in size but typically range from 26 to 36 inches wide and 30 to 44 inches long. When choosing a baby blanket size, individuals should consider the blanket's intended use and the size of the baby.
Instead of purchasing a baby blanket, crocheting or sewing one allows individuals to customize the size of the blanket while matching the colors and fabrics to the nursery's decor. Depending on the person's skill level and speed, it typically takes a minimum of 12 hours to crochet a small baby blanket. Sewing a baby blanket can take as little as one to two hours.
