What advice would you give someone starting this project? I started with a larger cast-on for a wider neckline. Before cutting the steek, I cut the contrast floats first & secured them separately with needle & thread before cutting the main color & securing with ribbon. I recommend wider steeks in the future. Also, the Lett-Lopi is much too scratchy. I won't use it again, though it gives that authentic look.

That is excellent! I love the idea of a zippered version!
