I haven't, but have you tried typing the name of the design into google and searching? Sometimes folks with blogs or on other sites post their finished products.

Here's the picture, I found it on the Debbie Bliss site, but you're right it doesn't show the neck, it's under the scarf....makes no sense!

Do you have the book yourself or just have seen pictures of the sweater?

If you have the pattern, what are the neck directions?

With right side facing and 5mm needles pick up and knit 18 st down left front neck, [att accross 10st at centre front, pick up and k17 st up right front neck, patt accross 28 sts at centre back. 73 sts
1st rib row(wrong side)P4,(K2, P4)to last 3 sts, k2 p1
2nd rib row K1, (K2 P4) to end
rep the last 2 rows until collar measure 8cm/3in ending with a 1st rib row

Does that sound like a high neck
I am such a novice

It's either a 3-inch high neck, or one that could be folded over and seamed for a crew neck. You could use the neck line of a different sweater if you didn't like this one, though.
