I love this pattern. Very

I love this pattern. Very clever. How would I adapt the pattern for a L/XL? Do I have to begin with a larger chain? Where do I add stitches throughout the pattern?

Hi tnxwAdbX29kDqzxxyFXK,

Hi tnxwAdbX29kDqzxxyFXK,
If you use a slightly thicker yarn and larger size crochet hook. You may follow the pattern exactly. Happy crochet!
