Pattern Review - Mary Jane Slippers

Pattern Review - Mary Jane Slippers

I learned to crochet in January 2011.  I picked up the basics fairly quickly but quickly got bored with practicing on the dishcloth I started. Of course, once I finished it, that was one lop-sided dishcloth! But I finished it and it was almost square and I gave it to a lovely lady in Punta Cana and she loved it.

Then I wanted to try another project but had no idea where to start.

Until my daughter sent me an email with a photo of a pair of slippers she wanted.

They were for Mary Jane Slippers.

And they were crochet, not knit.

It turns out, she had no idea they were crochet, she just liked them.  And since I'd just learned to crochet, I thought I'd give them a try.

This pattern is AMAZING! 

Such an easy pattern to follow!

And I made that first pair and was pleased with the result - all the mistakes were so well hidden - well, to an amateur like me, or to my daughter who couldn't tell if it was crochet or knit!  :)

I then went on to make many more of these slippers - at least 11 pair, if not more!  I love the pattern!  The recipients love the slippers!

Here is the link to Mary Jane Slippers on ravelry.

So, whether you are new to crochet, or an expert, I'd recommend this pattern!

I love it!
