    I like to make these 60 X 72.
    You have enough to wrap around you that way and tuck in under your feet :D:D:D

    Depends of the size of the person using the recliner. Do you want it to wrap up in or to spread on the recliner? How about taking a tape measure & measuring the seated area of the recliner. Since your making it, it can be a custom fit.

    50x60 or 45x60 is usual.depends on how long one's legs are and how much you like to tuck.

    Thanks for the responses. It will be used by a big man.....but can't let him know it so I can't really measure.
