[quote=suzeeq;1110135]You could pick up stitches for a neckband, but you could also start the split for the V a couple inches higher or wherever you want it to be.

============
I've been trying to find an answer about modifying necklines and saw this response of yours to a poster's question related to a sweater already finished. But my question is about changing the neckline depth on any sweater while in the process of knitting - no specific pattern in mind. I just don't like plunging necklines.

Is it really as straightforward as beginning neck shaping sooner than instructed in the pattern on a top-down sweater and starting the shaping later than instructed on a bottom-up sweater?

Any assistance much appreciated.
