How wide is yours?

I'll be starting a gift ripple-ghan soon, and it has struck a nerve of curiousity deep within my hook-ed soul.

The question: How wide is your afghan?



I'd muchly appreciate some feedback here - you all serve to inspire me so much, my muses!

Thanks in advance,

Jen

I'd love to join this RAL -- can anyone tell me how? Thanks!

Mine is 55"wide. I'm hoping to make it about 70" long.

I'll probably use it as a throw on my bed as well, since it'll be too hot to use by the time I finish it, but my main reason is to have a nice cuddly throw to wrap myself in while I knit or crochet in front of the TV.

lene, I think you just leave a comment with your email and she adds you. I know she is a bit behind because of vacation(lucky thing) but I'm sure she will update as soon as she can. I'm on the list too:)

Mine is 60". I intended to make it 50", but it came out a little bigger and I decided it's fine. It will be like a bedspread on ds' twin bed. I want to make it 60 - 80" long, we'll see.

Mine is 60" for a twin bed. It's wide enough to drape over the sides. I checked mine out on our queen sized bed and it covers the top of it.

Michelle said...

I actually haven't measure mine, but I can tell you that it drapes about 5 inches over the sides of my queen-size bed. Which is to say, it's WIDE.

Good question! Mine when blocked should be between 55 and 57" meaning it should fit perfectly across my double bed with a couple inches hang each side. =)

90 inches = queen size blanket = 300 ch + 3 for first dc with, I think, an H hook

Mandi said...

Mine measures 85 inches across. I'm making it for a full size bed. I wanted it to be a little wider then normal for that size.

Mine is 48" wide and 63" long. It's done with Caron Simply Soft Brites and designed for a child.

thanks for your input. I'm not sure if she wants the blanket for her bed or for the couch. I think i will make it for the couch because it'll go by faster :)n
