This top is worked top-down in spiraling rounds to create a totally seamless top.
I designed it this way to avoid a seam from joining rounds. One of the downfalls of crochet top-down sweaters is the seam that is usually found in the back from joining rounds, but this top is completely seamless so you don't have to worry about a noticeable line down the center back.
This is a repetitive pattern with only 3 increase rounds for XS and 4 increase rounds for all other sizes. The only other round that needs any special attention is the joining round to create space for the sleeves, which is still quite straightforward! This is a great mindless project that you can work on while focusing on other things. Once you've completed the yoke, you can remove your stitch marker if you'd like and just go-go-go until you're happy with the length!
