Free Crochet Pattern: Mary Jane Slippers

I decided today to share one of my favorite slipper patterns.  These mary jane slippers are cute, comfy and a lot more stylish than some traditional crochet slipper patterns.  
The pattern I use for the adult slippers was designed by Nikki Kirkwood.  The instructions call for a button to be used as an accent on the slippers but you can use any applique you want.  In the picture above, I used a small flower instead of the button.  For Valentine’s Day, I crocheted some slippers for a gift and used a small pink heart.  The pattern for the adult slippers is available as a free download and can be found:
I recently completed a custom order for matching adult and toddler mary jane slippers.  To complete the order, I created the pattern for toddler slippers below.  The pattern is for a toddler with a shoe size of  6-7.5 but can be adjusted to fit up to a toddler size 10.

Slippers were made to fit toddlers size 6-7.5 but can be adjusted to fit up to a toddler size 10.  To make slippers larger or smaller, adjust the number of rows during Rows 14-16.

  1. Ok, I feel so silly!! I really like this pattern, but Im just not getting Row 10 (on the childrens pattern) I chain 7…. and the I have no idea where the next 19 st go..come from… Could you please help?? Thank you so much!!Victoria**

  2. The pattern says 'sc in 2nd CHAIN from hook and in next 19 sts.' So after you make the 7 chains, turn and start crocheting from the second chain onwards – you will end up with 20 stitches total. That makes the strap.

  3. Hello!I really would like to crochet the adult Mary Jane slippers, buy unfortunately the pattern is no longer available on Ravelry. Is it possible for you to re-post the pattern? Thank you!
