Blanket / Bed Runner Size Guide

Blanket and Bed Runners Size Guide

A question I often get asked, is about the size of my different blankets and bed runners ‑ so I thought I’d put together a little guide! However, the main thing to take out from this is that, as all my items are hand made, I can make to pretty much any size!!! The listings on my website are the most common sizes and it’s these that I talk about below, but if you can’t find the size you are after on my website, please feel free to message me for a no obligations quote for a blanket / bed runner in your specific dimensions!

Bed Runners

All bed runners come in several different stitches and a huge variety of colours! I have split the colours into two different groups:
• Block Colours ‑ which is wool that is all one colour!
• Blend Colours ‑ which is wool made from several different colours all wrapped into one chunky strand!

Also don’t forget that you can add Tassels or PomPoms to your bed runner if you are wanting a little something extra! These can be added in a different colour to the main part of your bed runner, or the same colour, whichever takes your fancy!

So here are the standard sizes you will find on my website! Starting with the smallest ‑ Single Bed Runners.
 

Single Bed Runner:

A standard single bed is 90cm wide, so these bed runners give a nice drop either side of the bed. They are 70cm wide, so do not cover too much of the bed, but wide enough to use as a blanket on top of your duvet on those extra cold nights!

Above shows a Granite Bed Runner in the stockinette stitch with matching tassels, however this bed runner can be made in several different stitches and lots of different colours!

Don’t forget that you can order your tassels / PomPoms in a different colour to the main bed runner!
 

Double / King Bed Runner

A standard Double Bed is 135cm wide and a Standard King Size Bed is 150cm wide, so this size bed runner is suitable for both size beds. Merino wool is quite flexible, so you can make it wider / longer by stretching it out to suit how you would like it styled. Also remember that when you add tassels to a bed runner, this will make the bed runner longer on either side (approx. Tassel length is 25cm).

Above shows a Double / King bed runner knitted in the cable stitch, made with Humbug merino wool and finished with PomPoms! Again there is a large selection of colours and stitches available for this size bed runner. 

Super King Size Bed Runner

The standard size for a Super King Bed is 180cm wide, so this size bed runner will give you a nice drop either side. As mentioned, merino wool is quite flexible, so you can jig it about a bit to sit how you want it, or stretch it a little if you would like a slightly longer hang either side. Don’t forget that tassels are each approx: 25cm long, so this needs to be accounted for when checking any dimensions.

Blankets

All blankets come in several different stitches and a huge variety of colours! As with the Bed Runners, I have split the colours into two different groups:
• Block Colours ‑ which is wool that is all one colour!
• Blend Colours ‑ which is wool made from several different colours all wrapped into one chunky strand!

Also don’t forget that you can add Tassels or PomPoms to your blanket if you are wanting a little something extra! These can be added in a different colour to your blanket, or the same colour, whichever takes your fancy!

So here are the standard sizes you will find on my website! Starting with the smallest! The Extra Small Blanket! 

Extra Small Blanket

The extra small blanket is the perfect size to just add a subtle splash of colour and coziness to a room! This size can be laid over a foot stool, the back of the sofa or the arm of the chair. It's also a great size to just cover your lap on those extra cold nights, or to use in flat lay photography!
