i am just learning how to crochet but saw something similar at zellers already made but they were too small for my big feet. these are for sure too small.

this is from the marthastewart website


does anyone know of a pattern for mary-jane slippers? like these but not for babies.

here is their link.

you could try doing the same pattern in a much bigger gauge.

I did that once with a knitted baby slipper pattern.  Turned out my size.

yup!
Mind you, the baby slippers I remade were supposed to be done in really fine yarn on tiny needles, so I just upgraded to worsted weight on #7s (probably the most commonly used size).  So if this pattern already uses normal sized yarn, you'd have to go up to bulky, and it might look....bulky.  But it might be worth a try if you can't find a grown up sized pattern.

it really looks like a pretty basic pattern, so if you can't find any in your size, you can wing it  Smiley  if your really really new to crochet, i would suggest making one pair in the type of yarn you want for yours, and the same hook.  once you have a hands on model, see how much bigger you would need to make it.  the bottom is basically an oval, guestimate and make your chain however many stitches longer, then start your first round. once you have the sole, and it looks like your model (basically anyways) the heel part and strap should be pretty easy to figure out. trial and error is the best way to learn. sorry i can't explain any better. i can look at a picture and know how to do it, but i can't quite say how to do it.  Undecided

Here is a mary janes crochet so cute I have done this with an E size hook will be about 5 and one half inches and then  a B hook about 4 inches and smaller hook even smaller.
and I was using baby yarn as well. So Im thinking too maybe use like a I hook and see if your getting the adult size you want or H hook and reg yarn. I have not tryed to make adults but they are way cute when done. Here is the link to pattern:

sounds like a swell idea to do them in an adult size, although, for some reason i'm not so sure they would be AS cute on MY size 10's.

If you knit or if you can do a knit-to-crochet conversion, there is a really cute pattern at:

http://www.kindagrape.com/projects/janes.htm

I'm trying to teach myself to knit with this pattern.  I'm not very far and it appears so far that I'm just destined to be a crocheter.  Anyway, just thought I'd share.  Roll Eyes

i have been looking for a crochet maryjane pattern for hours, but have comeup with only knitted patterns (i knew i shoulda kept with the two sticks)!!!!

anyways...this is what i found....http://www.geocities.com/gossgirl2/abislippers.htm

it's a pattern for a very bassic crochet slipper to which one could add a nice strap and button(and maybe a cool ribbon interwoven too...like the one in spazz/dithmar's gallery...i love those!)

hope this helps.

I came across this tutorial on a google search:

http://www.delicat.ca/journal/archives/2004/09/crochet_mary_ja.html

They are corchet, and I think it would be easy to customize this pattern to whatever shoe size you wear (adult or child).  If anybody has luck with this method, please post a pic!  I'm too busy with work & school and the ten projects I already have going to start on these, but I have the tutorial bookmarked for future reference.

Lotus666 Thanks for the pattern of slippers that might work as maryjanes adding a strap I did look and look before too and could never find a simple slipper that I could convert. And the one for kids I could not make bigger than child size.  I am new to understanding directions so I can't really tweek patterns to make them work yet. But can wait to give that pattern a shot. Thanks again

I'm trying to make myself a crocheted pair of these:
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=12662.0
I think they look more maryjane-like than the martha ones? I'm just crocheting a long rectangle with some decreases towards the end (working from heel to toe, so decreases towards the toe end). I sort of measured it on my feet by making a row that only goes halfway up my foot on either side (because I made my first one WAY too big  Undecided). Then just try to follow the knitted version directions.
The straps are already crochet, actually. And if you need a tutorial on how to do double or triple chains:
