Thanks for the suggestion - I've been doing that and could wallpaper a room with scrawled-on graph paper! I've been putting the central base neck stitches on a holder, then knitting & shaping up each side to the shoulder tops, but this allows very little 'give' around the neck. So, I'm ending up with a neck hole that appears far too big to put a snug polo neck onto, or a too tight one. Is there another method of making a neckline where I could do a lose cast off around the entire neck?
Should I go back to knitting scarves?!
