Thank you very much. This is a big help, and yes - I understand a neckband would affect the depth.
So if the neckline is other than a v-neck - say a scoop, e.g. - I would essentially do the same thing - i.e., adjust frequency of decreases?

Again - thanks for your quick and helpful response. A Ravelry member suggested I post my question here because she said the Mods are very active and very helpful. She was right.
