Hi redjewel,

Hi redjewel,
You may work more increase rows until your back and front parts will be wide enough to your chest circumference. Then you will add two more repeats under each arm when joining back and front parts together.
If your gauge will be about the same as mine, for size L, it is necessary to work 35 repeats in total. You may use a lightly thicker yarn to adjust your gauge (3 repeats = 3.8 inches) and follow the pattern exactly. Happy crochet!

Hi sarvani,

Hi sarvani,
I would say that I used about 2/3 of the ball. Happy crochet!

Hi sarvani,

Hi sarvani,
The yarn color is WESTERN. It is 50% cotton and 50% acrylic yarn. All other details about the yarn are below the very first picture.
