Hi Manasa B H,

Hi Manasa B H,
For the size XL, I would use a larger size crochet hook or/and thicker yarn to make my gauge to be about 2 repeats = 6 inches or add 4 additional repeats. One repeat for each sleeve and one repeat for the front and back parts. So, (28 x 5) + 1 = 141 chs. The foundation chain might be wide on your shoulders. Then it will be necessary to decrease some chs while working the neck edge. Happy crochet!

Hi Lil crochet 34,

Hi Lil crochet 34,
For the size L, I would work make a foundation chain of about 131 chs or I would add one repeat to the front part and one repeat to the back part. You may also add one repeat to each sleeve to make them wider. Then your foundation chain should be 10 chs more. Happy crochet!
