    There is a number called the “golden ratio” that is used by architects and crafters to create objects that are pleasing to the eye. It is 1.618. If you multiply your width by that number, you get 6 ft 6 inches. That’s also a pretty good size for a blanket to cuddle under on the couch.

    If you want it to be great, make it 6 ft long. Means many people can use it.

    Short people will swim in it, tall people will feel comfy.

    Perhaps you can get an idea from standard size, like A twin blanket is 39 inches wide and 75 inches long. Hope this gives you some idea in comparison.

    A blanket for a Single should be 66" x 90"

    Unless it is custom for a child, then the length should be 24" longer than the child (or little person) is tall.

    Twin 66x90"

    Full/Queen 90x90"

    Queen 90x90"

    King 108x90"

    Make it 4' feet long. That means it will be a perfect square. Theres nothing better than a perfect square blanket. It just feels.....right. It makes you wanna hug it and fall asleep with it nice and warm 🌙
