leethal Mary Janes
A simple pair of slippers, knit flat up to the toe part, then around on double points, this is a good beginner pattern for those looking to get a little more complex.
Knit the main part flat, add the strap as you go, then switch to double pointed needles for the rounded toe section.
Add decorative buttons on when you finish to personalize your slippers… then put them on and have cozy feet!
These are knit with several strands of yarn (or a super bulky weight yarn) to make them nice and thick. The garter stitch body makes them stretchy, so the sizing is very flexible. A very quick and easy project!

12/08/08 finally made it into a pdf! slightly redesigned based on common problems, they should fit feet better now. there will soon be a follow-up blog post with some more sizing adjustment suggestions.
