Mary Jane Slipper samples
As part of the baby range I'm working on a pair of Mary Jane slippers, based on a pattern by Crochet Geek. In the first picture shown, the top slipper has been worked with a 5mm crochet hook using 14 FHDCs to start. The middle was also worked on a 5mm hook but using 12 FHDCs at the start and the bottom was worked with a 4mm hook also using 12 FHDCs. The 4mm hook gave the best stiffness so I'll probably use this. In the second picture I've made a slipper in the same way as the bottom slipper in the first picture, however I've added an extra row in the sole, toe tip and back. This is the pattern that I'll go with. Next I'm going to make a finalised prototype. If it turns out well I'll begin making them.
