How much fabric does it take to make a blanket?
The answer varies, depending on what size blanket you want to make.
For starters, here are the standard blanket sizes for Pendleton jacquard blankets:
- Muchacho (crib size): 32" wide and 44" long
- Robe (closest to twin size): 64" wide and 80" long
- Queen: 90" by 90"
- King: 108" wide by 90" long
That's not to say you have to use our sizes for your blanket, but they're useful as a reference.

64" x 80"
Most of our fabric rolls are 64" wide, which means you can make a robe/twin size blanket without adding any extra fabric. Just take the length you want and bind the edges and your blanket is ready to go!
For larger sizes, you have to start thinking about putting panels of fabric together, and cutting pieces to the size you want. It can get complicated pretty quickly!
