When you mention that you worked in Rows NOT rounds, do you mean that you DID NOT steek? I would to prefer to not knit in rounds.

Yes, I did not steek. There are not many patterning rows and patterning is symmetrical, so it is easy to work it back and forth.

Several comments mention your advice on how to eliminate puckering but I don't see it. Please post again. I can use the advice. Thanks

I like your ribbon selection with the colors you selected for the sweater.

I love your results, this and the gray Maren, and wonder if you could share anything specific or detailed about how you achieved the wider, lower neck and what alterations you needed to make in the chart or in the pattern. I am not an experienced knitter and not at all experienced with sweater knitting but I was completely inspired by this exciting sweater and can already tell that you have achieved the neckline results I would also hope for if I knew how to do it or to try it!

For the wider neck, I cast on the number of stitches given for after the first increase and did not work that increase.
