My super duper easy Knit mary janes (all done in stockinette) if you say 5 stitchs is an inch, cast on 30 stitches, then go until you reach from your heal to the tip of your biggest toe, then knit 2 together for 2 rows, and cast off then sew em up! (found this one on craftster.org)

That's awesome! I've been wondering how I could knit some of those little socks that leave the tops of your feet bare for some of the shoes I wear to work and I think I could make these without the little strap! Thanks for the idea! :D

I thought of ruby slippers when I saw them, too!

That is a terrific project for leftover yarn! Imagine how cute you could make them with funky yarn and buttons. Yours remind me of the "goodbye yellow brick road" booties. Absolutely cool.

THose are awsome !!! Do you have a link to the pattern ? I can't seem to find it. Did you make a buttonhole for the button or does the strap always stay where it is?

AWSOME AWSOME AWSOME !!!!

the strap is sewn on so the button is just for looks, no button whole needed. the gage of the yarn I used was 5 stitchs = an inch if that helps, but honestly this is too easy to mess up you dont really need a pattern, just cast on to the width you want and go until to reach the toe, then knit 2 together (of every stitch) for 2 rows. remember just to the toe, no further it doesnt fold over and down you sew up the sides as far down as you want them to be, then add a strap, or not depending on how you like it. I did mine in stockinette but they can be done in any stitch really. I made some for my fiance, but forgetting the stap and adding in a square of ribbing which made them wider and more manly. (I will post a picture later)

Here's a question. When you decided on your width .... what did you measure on your foot? All the way around? I'm confused on where to start lol. THanks a bunch !!

How cute!! I work in a home where I have to take my shoes off at night and my tootsies get cold so those would be a good idea!

about the width, honestly I just followed the other persons pattern, ie 30 stitches which will change how tall the heel is among other things. Once you get a bit on try pinching up the end around your heel to see if it is alright and the width (hight of the shoe agaist your foot) seems to work out for you. But kniting is strechy! I should think if 30 stitchs worked for both myself (with a size 8 rather narrow) and my fiance who has moster feet which are rather wide (I did add in a small stripe of black ribbing on his to make them wider around the front of the foot) it should work for about anyone.

Sooo....5sts/inch, cast on 30sts, that would make your piece about 6 inches wide. So I suppose you could use any nifty little stitch pattern to come up with the same size piece...hmmmm the possibilities!!!! :happydance:
