It is very easy to size for your personal preference, the larger the pentagon the larger the size and the smaller the pentagon the smaller the size.
With your yarn and hook make a magic circle and ch1,
Round 1: make 30 sc in the center of the magic circle, sl st with the first sc.
Round 2: ch3 (counts as dc), dc in the next 5sc, *ch2, dc in the next 6 sc* repeat from *to* around ch2 and sl st with the ch3. You will have 5-6dc Petal sections.
Round 3: ch3 (counts as first dc), dc in the next 5dc, *ch2, in the ch2 sp make a Vst (dc, ch1, dc), ch2, dc in the next 6dc* Repeat from *to* around, ch2, in the last ch2 sp make a Vst (dc, ch1, dc) ch2, sl st with the top of the ch3.

Round 4: ch3, in the next 5dc you will make a decrease/petal (yo, insert hook in st, yo, draw hook through st, yo, pull through the first 2 loops repeat that over the next 4st, then yo and draw through all loops) *ch3, in the center of the Vst you will make (3dc, ch3, 3dc), ch3, over the next 6dc you will make a decrease/petal (yo, insert hook in the st, yo, draw hook through st, yo, pull through the first 2 loops, repeat that over the next 5st, then yo and draw through all the loops)* repeat from *to* around, ch3, in the last Vst make (3dc, ch3, 3dc), ch3 sl st with the top of first decrease/petal you made. You will have 5 petals made with 5 corners.
Round 5: ch4 (counts as first dc and ch1) in the same st make a dc (you made your first Vst), *ch3, over the next 3dc you will make a decrease making a leaf, just like in the previous round when you decreased (yo, insert hook in st, yo, draw hook though st, yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat over the next 2 st, yo over draw through all loops) ch3, in the ch3 sp you will make a Vst (dc, ch1, dc) in the 2nd ch, ch3, Repeat again the decrease over the next 3dc, ch3, in the top of the petal from the previous round make a Vst (dc, ch1, dc) * repeat from *to* around to the last corner, ch3, over the next 3dc you will make a decrease (yo, insert hook in st, yo, draw hook though st, yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat over the next 2 st, yo over draw through all loops) ch3, in the ch3 sp you will make a Vst (dc, ch1, dc) in the 2nd ch, ch3, Repeat again the decrease over the next 3dc, ch3, sl st with the 3rd ch from the beginning of the round.
Round 6: ch4 (counts as dc and ch1) in the same st make a dc (you made your first Vst), in the next dc of the Vst you will make a Vst (dc, ch1, dc), *ch3, in the Corner Vst from the previous round make (3dc, ch3, 3dc) ch3, in the first dc of the Vst from the previous round make a Vst, in the next dc make another Vst,* repeat from *to* around, ch3, in the last Vst (3dc, ch3, 3dc), ch3 sl st with the 3rd ch of the ch4 from beginning of the round. You will have the first half of your leaf corner pattern complete and will have 2Vst between corners
Round 7: ch4 (counts as dc and ch1) in the same st make a dc (counts as first Vst), sk 1dc, on top of the next you will make another Vst, in the last dc you will make a Vst, *ch3, 3dc dec over the next 3dc, ch3, in the ch3 sp from previous round make a Vst in the 2nd ch, 3dc dec over the next 3dc, ch3, in the first dc of the first Vst make a Vst, sk a dc and make a Vst in the next dc, sk a dc and make another Vst in the last Dc of the last Vst* Repeat from *to* around, ch3, 3dc dec over the next 3dc, ch3, in the ch3sp from the previous round make a Vst in the 2nd ch, 3dc dec over the last 3dc, ch3, sl st with the 3rd ch of the ch4 from the beginning of the round. You will have completed your leaf corner pattern and will have 3Vst between corners.
Round 8: ( First Half of the Leaf Corner Pattern) Ch4, dc in the same st (counts as first Vst), then skipping a dc and making a vst in the next, repeating across and your last vst is in the last dc of the last Vst from the previous round, *[corner] ch3, in the center of the corner Vst (3dc, ch3, 3dc), ch3, [first half of your corner leaf pattern made], making your first Vst in the first dc of the first Vst from the previous round, then skipping a dc and making a vst in the next, repeating across, making your last Vst in the last dc of the last Vst from the previous round,* repeat from *to* around to the last corner, ch3, in the center of the corner Vst (3dc, ch3, 3dc), ch3, sl st with the 3rdch of the ch4 from the beginning of the round.
Round 9: (Second Half of the Leaf Corner Pattern) Ch4, dc in the same st (counts as first Vst), then skipping a dc and making a vst in the next, repeating across and your last vst is in the last dc of the last
Vst from the previous round, *[corner] ch3, 3dc dec over the next 3dc, ch3, in the ch3sp from the previous round make a Vst in the 2nd ch, 3dc dec over the last 3dc, ch3 [second half of Leaf corner pattern made], making your first Vst in the first dc of the first Vst from the previous round, then skipping a dc and making a vst in the next, repeating across, making your last Vst in the last dc of the last Vst from the previous round,* repeat from *to* around to the last corner, ch3, for the last corner 3dc dec over the next 3dc, ch3, in the ch3sp from the previous round make a Vst in the 2nd ch, 3dc dec over the last 3dc, ch3, sl st in the 3rdch of the ch4 from the beginning of the round.
Dc dec ( yo insert hook in st, yo, draw hook through st, yo, pull through first 2 loops, repeat that over the next 2st, yo, draw through all loops)
Now that you have an idea of how the pattern will go you will continue to repeat these last 2 rows until you reach the size you want, making sure you end with an Odd round. For the size small I repeated the last 2 rows until I had 13 Vst in between corners or 7 leaf corners (1 full Leaf corner is made up of the 2 rounds then repeated)
Once you are done fasten off and make another for the back of your top. Hide all loose tails.
Assemble: lay your pentagons right sides together, with your hook join your yarn to any corner in the ch1sp, you will sl st through the st closest to you from the front of your work and the st furthest from you on the back of your work, matching st for st, you will work like this until you (for the size small) have 4 Vst left you will leave these unworked for the opening of your armpit (the number of Vst will vary depending the size you make) DO NOT Fasten off, you will now work on the one side of your top and you will sc in each st and chain along until you reach the ch1 sp of your corner Vst, ch40 (for the small/medium, about 20ch for a toddler, 30ch for a childs, 50ch for Large, 60ch for Xlarge, if you need to add more or less for your size just remember the number for the second strap) Now being careful not to Twist your chain you will sl st it to the Ch1 sp of the corner at the opposite side of your top (creating the arm hole opening), you will then sc in each st and ch until you reach the side seam/bottom of the arm hole opening, sl st with the first sc from the other side and fasten off.
Keeping your work right sides together, lay your work in front of you the point of the pentagon should be the bottom of your top. Skipping that bottom point join your yarn in the next Corner and assemble the same as you did the first side seam. Use the photo below to help. Hide all your loose tails on the wrong side of your work. You can leave your top like this or add an edge to your neckline and slightly widen your straps.



Top neck edge and widening the straps: Turn your work right side out, join your yarn at the left of your strap on the right side of your top in the ch1 sp of the corner.
Ch1,* sk 2 st, in the 3rd make 4dc in the same st, sk 2st, in the 3rd sl st* repeat from *to* across your neck line until you reach the other strap, if your last st is a 4dc in the same st as the ch of the strap then you will sk2 ch and sl st before you sc in each ch across otherwise sc in each ch across till you reach the back, then you will repeat from *to* across the back of your works edge repeating the same sc along the ch for your second strap as you did the first half, sl st with the first st and fasten off, hide all loose tails.
Your top is done but you can add some fringe to the bottom of your top like I did. You can go to the 44:56 Minute mark on the Video for help on how to make the fringe and adding it to your top.
Take your yarn and fold it every 10 inches I did it 3 times so you have 4 strings, but you can fold yours more if you want a thicker fringe. You will then add it to your top, I started at the Middle of the front in the corner Vst and placed them evenly along each side of the top and repeated it again for the back.
Fold your fringe in half, insert your hook in a st and grab the fringe, pulling the loop through the st and then grabbing the strands and pulling them through the loop, pull the loose strands to tighten the loop, but not too tight and continue to add your fringe to the bottom of your top.
