The top is worked in the round, from the top down. Cast on stitches using a temporary crochet cast on, so the size of the neckline can be adjusted subsequently. Short rows are worked across the shoulder and back at the beginning to give a higher neckline. The yoke is worked with increases, made into small stars. These can be omitted. Hereafter the work is divided, and both the sleeves and the body are worked separately.
