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.
