Hi disney,

Hi disney,
You may try to adjust your gauge by using larger size crochet hooks and thicker yarn to work the L size. The other option is to add 4 more repeats (one repeat for each shoulder part, and one repeat for each back and front parts). For that, make a foundation chain of 133 chs. Join it into a ring with the slip stitch.
1st round – ch2, sc to end + sl.st.1 into 2nd ch
Increase
2nd round – ch3, dc2 into the same ch, ch1, sk2, [dc3 into 1ch, ch1, sk2] to end + sl.st.1 into 3rd ch
After the 2nd round you should have 44 repeats. Work 3 - 14 rounds totally the same as I did.
15th round – ch1, (ch4, (dc3, ch1, dc3) under 1ch, ch4, sc1 under chs between 2 repeats) x 7, ch18, sk 4 repeats, sc1 under chs between 2 repeats, (ch4, (dc3, ch1, dc3) under 1ch, ch4, sc1 under chs between 2 repeats) x 7, ch18, sk 4 repeats + sl.st.1 into 1st ch
Crochet following rounds as I did. Happy crocheting!

Hi Sana!

Hi Sana!
I am glad to find your wonderful tutorials and thank you very much. I would love to make this but my yarn is thinner than yours and i would use hook 2mm. Would you please advise for L size with how many stitches to start with?
Thanking you in advance xxxx
Dora

Hi iliaktida,

Hi iliaktida,
To suggest you a number of chs to start with, I need to know your gauge. To practice the gauge, you may make a foundation chain of about 25 chs, and then follow the directions in the comment box. Happy crochet!

Hi again Sana,

Hi again Sana,
Thank you for your reply, much appreciated!
My gauge is 4 inches (10 cm exactly) for two repeats.
I already started it so enthusiastic to archive this... comes out 20 repeats, my size is L (UK12).
I attached for you a photo of the progress. If you think is wrong and I would need to start it over I will do.
Thanks again Sana, you are gorgeous.

Greetings from Greece xxx

Hi iliaktida,

Hi iliaktida,
In your case, I would add 6 more repeats (one repeat for each shoulder part, and two repeats for each back and front parts). For that, make a foundation chain of 145 chs. Join it into a ring with the slip stitch.
You may sc or dc your first round.
Increase
2nd round – ch3, dc2 into the same ch, ch1, sk2, [dc3 into 1ch, ch1, sk2] to end + sl.st.1 into 3rd ch
After the 2nd round you should have 48 repeats. Work 3 - 14 rounds totally the same as I did.
15th round – ch1, (ch4, (dc3, ch1, dc3) under 1ch, ch4, sc1 under chs between 2 repeats) x 8, ch18, sk 4 repeats, sc1 under chs between 2 repeats, (ch4, (dc3, ch1, dc3) under 1ch, ch4, sc1 under chs between 2 repeats) x 8, ch18, sk 4 repeats + sl.st.1 into 1st ch
In case you want to widen the garment even more, you may add 2 repeats under each arm instead of one.
Crochet following rounds as I did. Happy crocheting!

Hi Sana,

Hi Sana,
Hope you're well. As usual I need your help. My gauge - 2 repeats: 3.5 ins. Chest circumference: 36 ins. How many chains do I need.
