Adult Man Foot Length 10″ – 12″  25-36 cm (My son wears a 12.5 (European 46) shoe and his foot measures 11.25″ 27 cm  long not standing on it.)

I found this SOCK ANALYSIS CHART that lists so much information about sock sizes for all ages!

Sweater measurements: (2yrs to 14yrs)

Approximate Sweater Measurements- remember children vary in height and width but these are meant to be a guideline.  If you are making these for humanitarian causes, the sweater you make will fit someone:

Size in years:

Age 2-3:   Chest – 22″   Back neck to waist – 9″   Sleeve –  12.25 -13″

Age 4-5:   Chest –  24″   Back neck to waist – 11″   Sleeve – 15″

Age 6-7:   Chest –  27″   Back neck to waist – 12″   Sleeve – 16.5″

Age 8-9:   Chest –  29″   Back neck to waist – 13″   Sleeve – 17.5″

Age 10-11:   Chest – 30″   Back neck to waist – 14.25″   Sleeve – 18″

Age 12-13:   Chest – 32″   Back neck to waist –  15.25″   Sleeve – 21″

Age 14:   Chest – 34   Back neck to waist – 15.5″   Sleeve – 24″

Blankets:

Blanket Sizes (approximate) For preemies, blankets without ‘holes’ are best.

Small Preemie: 18″ – 20″ square 45 cm – 50 cm square

Medium Preemie: 20″ – 22″ square 50 cm – 56 cm sq

Large Preemie: 22″ – 30″ square 55 cm – 75 cm sq

Full Term Baby: 32″ – 36″ square  80-90 cm sq

Baby 30″ x 36″ = crib sized (6″ granny squares= 5 across x 6 down ~ 30 sq)

Children  42″x 48″  (6″ squares= 7 across x 8 down ~ 56 sq)

Lapghan often used in seniors homes 36″ x 48″ (6″ squares= 6 across x 8 down ~ 48 squares)
Adult Afghan (Will fit across top of bed)  48″ x 72″ = twin sized.  (6″ squares= 8 across x 12 down ~ 96 squares) Adult Double Bed  (Will fit across top of bed and over just a bit)  60″ x 84″ = full sized.  (6″ squares= 10 across x 14 down ~ 160 squares)

I recommend crocheting a double crocheted or shell crocheted edge around each blanket to finish it nicely. Most places that serve others won’t need these size mattress covers, but some of you might for family etc.  These are the actual mattress sizes though and not the blanket sizes.  You will need to make the blankets at least 6″ wider and longer so they fit over a person when laying on the bed.  In fact a foot larger would be more comfy!

Queen Mattress 60″ wide x 80″ long
Cal-King Mattress 72″ wide x 84″ long
King Mattress 76″ wide x 80″ long
