Good info for sizing

I did not create these tables!!  I found them to be something that could be used by a lot of people so I am posting them there.  The original page and the lady that did all this very hard work can be found here

 

This table outlines some standard sizes for bedspreads etc and also tells you how many blocks you’ll need if you decide to make it piece by piece rather than all in one.

This table outlines even more standard sizes for afghans, lapghans, throws and baby blankets. As you can see each item has several different sizes to choose from (which is a great excuse to buy more yarn and experiment with different sizes, stitch patterns and hooks!).
