The weather has gotten much colder at nights, so last night while I was watching "Jaws", I made myself a pair of Maryjane slippers to keep my feet warm. 20 minutes....that's all it took.

L hook
worsted weight yarn ( 2 strand held together)

ch 2. 6 hdc in first ch. join

ch 2. 2 hdc in each stitch around. join.

ch 2. 1 hdc in next st. 2 hdc in next st. repeat around. join.

ch 2. 1 hdc in each st around. Join. Do this till toe area is the length you want.

ch 2. hdc in next 14 sts. turn and continue this till foot area is length you want. You want the slipper to fit snug, so when you get to the heel, put right sides together and slip stitch shut.

Do a row of sc across the top of the slipper to finish the edge. You can add a strap by starting on one side and making it 2 sc wide  then slip stitching it to the opposite side.

Ta Da! fast and easy maryjanes in 20 minutes.

I love them! I so need a pair right now. Thanks for the tute! The generous spirit on craftster always amazes me. Hopefully, one day I'll be able to share something too.

 Shocked Those are awesome!!  I'm a total beginner, but your directions are so clear that I think I could even figure out how to make myself a pair!  Thank you SO MUCH for posting these!!

I realized I made an error in my tutorial. I had it as ch 2. 6 sc in first ch. It should read ch 2. 6 hdc in first chain. I fixed it up above, but I just wanted you all to know. I goofed!

Wow, those are adorable and quick! I can't wait to make a few pairs for the billions of relatives arriving next week (They're from Trinidad and get cold when the fridge opens)
Thanks for the tut!

those are so cute, they would be so warm in a really chunky, soft yarn

These totally rock!  Fast ones!  With abit of arthritis in my hands I'm always looking for patterns that don't take ages to do. This one I can do in one go!  BRAVO.  And definitely thanks for so generously sharing with us.  My daughter directed me to this pattern as she loves Mary Janes, no hints there of course! Roll Eyes

I have to admit I'm surprised that given you were watching Jaws, the slippers didn't turn out bright red! Cheesy  just kidding...thanks again!

These are so cute, thanks for the tut! I hate wearing socks so I should really make me a pair to wear during the cold winter months.
