Like Sue says once you decrease enough the stitches just won't fit around a 16" circular needle anymore. They stretch way out and it's not only hard to work it's bad for the garment and yarn. You can either get DPNs to finish the top OR you can use two circular needles of the same size or do Magic Loop with a longer circular needle.
