‘Mary Jane’ Strap Shoe

The Mary Jane shoe is a pretty, knitted summer baby shoe with a crochet border and strap. It knits up quickly in an aran weight yarn and is perfect for wearing over tights in the winter or by themselves when it gets warm. The strap is adjustable for a good fit. You will practise cables, knitting in the round, Kitchener stitch and basic crochet. If you haven't done crochet before, there's a very detailed photo guide on how to do the strap.
