I've been asked to make some baby afghans. What is the general size range for the following types of baby afghans?

Specifically:

Car seat afghan
Standard baby afghan
Crib size afghan

Thanks!!!

Here, I'm assuming you mean for an infant:

A car seat afghan is usually smaller, about 25 x 30 inches should do.

A standard baby afghan is usually about 36 inches square.

A crib afghan is larger, about 40 x 45, or throw sized.

I'm basing these measurements on sizes of afghans I've made for my new baby sister and other babies, so their may be some different opinions. These measurements have always worked perfectly for me.

I have done many many a baby blanket in crochet & I agree with Braden's measurements if you going at it without a pattern. Each pattern I have done over the years has it's own measurements. No two blankets are ever alike. A very very cherished gift!
