Crochet Footsie Blanket
The Crochet Footsie Blanket is designed to keep your feet tucked into a pocket. More more feet popping out at the bottom. Revision 2 is active as of August 13, 2019.
I’m too tall for an average throw size blanket. Instead of creating an obsessive about extra length, I created a pocket that is 12″ deep that I can slide my feet into to prevent my feet from poking out.
The entire project is the same length as my total height, so I have extra without forcing the blanket to stretch.
I intentionally created a striping effect at the bottom foot pocket area as this will most likely touch the floor. My cats sleep between my legs as I crochet. So they will sleep on the darker colour area without making my blanket look dirty too quickly.
I have included alternative information in the free downloadable PDF for the kid-size version. As an adult, I want to sleep on the sofa without feeling trapped. Thus, I only wanted to be 12″ deep pocket so I can easily get up.
I have given measurement options for those needing a chair or wheelchair size. The length is too long for being comfortable in a wheelchair. So I have given alternative measurements for that as well.

The Crochet Footsie Blanket uses the moss stitch after the pocket is formed.

Is there now a link to the updated pattern addressing the non-existent ch-1 space in the first row of the open blanket? I’d like to start this, but don’t want to buy the yarn until I understand the pattern completely. Thanks!
it’s not a completely open blanket, its worked in the round for the foot section than in rows once you get to a certain point
You say you fixed the error and revised the pattern. How do I download and get the revised pattern? Everything I see is the same as it was.
Let me re-check that. It was supposed to be changed as I did it.
Updated. Looks like the link in the article didn’t take or I missed it. It’s been updated now.
Thank you. I now have the corrected pattern.
Hi Mikey I am confused with the first row of the open blanket part. It mentions a chain 1 space that I don’t know where it came from. Thanks in advance
Fixing Now. Thanks for the clarity.
Hi: I am having a difficult time understanding how to form the pocket for my footie blanket! Where do I connect the two sides to form a the pocket? Thanks so much for your help!
The bottom section is formed like a hat. You don’t need to connect two sides to form the pocket. See the tutorial if that may have help you further to visualize the process.
Hello….thank you so much for this pattern!! My kids are excited for me to make them one. I was wondering if I could get some help? I am confused after the chain 54… Starting with round 1? And When do I stitch closed the bottom of the pocket? Thank you so much for all the help you can provide!! ?
Thank you for sharing. I love this idea for a blanket. Unfortunately I am one of many that has trouble reading patterns. I am a visual learner and have not been crocheting long. I do want to say thank you though.
lovely designs again for afghan blankets. Beautiful patterns.
I would love to make one for my mother….I have a question how do you do the very first row of the blanket after you made the pocket
I am also a great learner from the tutorials, just don’t have much luck from the patterns, I learn more from watching, I also was hoping you would change your mind and do a tutorial on this cozy footsie snuggle. This is a very good gift to give to chair bound people due to the softness and squishyness of this Bernat blanket yarn, it will keep the heels from breaking down and sores from happening. Please please reconsider on doing a tutorial on this great pattern. Thank you and your team for all the great work you do.
I’d love to make this! Approx how many skeins did u use in the one u made?
Hi I would love to make the footsie blanket but am having a hard time understanding how to start off the pocket.
Hi Mikey, I have completed the footsie part of the blanket but I’m confused about row one , it mentions chain one spaces but there aren’t any , could you please explain? Thank you for your help
It would sure be great if Mikey would answer this question. The written pattern is wrong, PLEASE correct it!!! Thank you.
Reading this now. Sorry. I’m at the airport going home. I don’t understand where the error is. Leave it with me. I don’t know where to look where the error is shown. I’m so sorry.
Mikey you STILL have not addressed the error in row 1 of the open blanket instructions!! Please respond with the correct instructions. You cannot do a sc in the chain 1 space because there is NO chain 1 space.
I just got back from Ohio. I was backlogged and just fixed the error this morning. I’m still scrolling through and just found your request here. I’m sorry, there are so many messages that I am backlogged.
The error is ROW 1 in the open blanket written instructions.
Can be more specific. What is the error so I can zoom in on the issue.
Mikey, Can you please add the gauge for the footsie blanket?
Oh my gosh! I can’t wait to make this!! ?
This is exactly how I feel with regards to blankets and my feet & shoulders; and I’m only 5’6”. ? (also, my feet are always cold ?❄️??❄️?) I really like bernat blanket yarn, so this is perfect. ???
Thank you & Dan for all your creativity & sharing nature. ??
OMG I love it! I have the same problem with feet getting cold. Perfect pattern I have yet to try. Thanks again Mikey! Happy crocheting! ?
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I’m a “tucker” so this is fabulous! I made the hibernate blanket for my bed and every time I get in bed I automatically pull the bottom up under my feet. Love this!
Thank you so MUCH for this snuggly foot blanket (with extra sizing options!!) I have been hooked on your videos since the very first one I watched!! I appreciate ALL you do!! + Daniel & your team!
I love this blanket. The minute I saw it I knew it was right for me and my mum but now I’m thinking that it’s just what my Dad needs too. I consider myself still a newbie yet I managed to do your Stitch, Stop and Roll Afghan. I bought a kit but I HAD to use your YouTube Tutorial all the way to the end. For years people have been trying to teach me to Crochet and none managed it. One day I saw you and hey presto I learned. For some reason I also have trouble following other YouTube Tutorials except for yours. It’s like I’m hard wired to just understand you, LOL. I know you said you weren’t going to do a tutorial for your Footsie Blanket but I hope you reconsider as I have already downloaded the pattern and read it through and am already stuck on the first row. In my mind I will have a row of stitches just hanging out there so I can’t even get started. Please do a tutorial. Thank you so much and thank you for teaching me to crochet. Sending love and hugs from Galicia, Spain xoxoxo
I love your work Mikey. Your tutorials are so helpful. I’ve been crocheting 4 decades and always learn something new from you. Thanks?
Thanks Mikey this will make a grate gift for Fathers day! I’m loving it
