What are standard blanket sizes? In contrast to the sizes of beds, mattresses, and bed linens, there is no industry standard for blankets. A blanket’s size will typically be comparable to sheets and duvets and, at the very least, sufficient to cover a bed and drape over the sides. The following blanket sizes chart is a general rule for “standard” blanket dimensions and measurements:
- Crib or Cot: 45 x 60 inches / 114 x 152 centimetres
- Twin or Single: 65 x 90 inches / 127 x 165 centimetres
- Double: 85 x 90 inches / 216 x 229 centimetres
- Queen: 90 x 90-100 inches / 229 x 229-254 centimetres
- King: 108 x 90-100 inches / 274 x 229-254 centimetres
- Throw blanket: 50 x 60 inches / 127 x 152 centimetres
