Making a simple knitted blanket

We should be ready before we start sewing. First determine the yarn you want to use and the stitched pattern, then make the gauge swatches, and finally we’ll use it to determine the number of pins that make the required size of the weighted blanket for adults.

Watching flowers easy to embroidery difficult, things still have to try in person to know difficult. What size of weighted blanket do you want? There are different standards for the size of beds and mattresses in different countries, which we will list for you. And life experience tells me that blankets must be designed to be larger than beds, usually 1:2, so that there is enough space to fold, and the edges of the blankets can be hung on both sides of the bed.

In USA, the “standard” sizes for blankets are as follows:

Bed SizesBlanket sizes
Crib45 by 60 inches or 115cm x 153cm
Twin66 by 90 inches or 168cm x 229cm
Double80 by 90 inches or 204cm x 229cm
Queen90 by 90 to 100 inches
King108 by 90 to 100 inches

In British, the standard UK bed sizes are as follows:

 Bed Size UKBedspread Size
 Single, 3’0” x 6’3” (36 inches x 75) or 90cm x 190cm 180 x  230 cm 
 Double, 4’6” x 6’3” (54 inches x 75) or 135cm x 190cm 230 x  255 cm 
 King size, 5’0” x 6’6” (60 inches x 78) or 150cm x 200cm 255 x  280 cm

Of course, the size of the weighted blanket also depends on many other factors. For example, the thickness of the mattress; personal liking, the coverage you want, such as whether you want it to fell to the floor or just comfortably cover the pillow and so on.
