In the very back of the neck it has you binding off stitches.  Then later for the neckline edging it has you picking up stitches all around.  Do you think it would be ok to just hold onto the very back stitches live and then knit them when you get to the edging?  Seems a lot easier than binding off stitches just to later pick them up, yk?

I don't have the pattern in front of me, and I don't remember exactly how the shoulder/neck shaping was done, but it probably wouldn't hurt to keep the stitches live.  If you wanted to keep the same shape without binding off, you could put these stitches on a holder or scrap yarn at the point where they call for bind-off.  Sounds like a good idea to me.  I'm not too experienced (especially in straying from what's written in a pattern), so maybe there's a better way that I don't know of...

Best of luck with your gathered pullover!  and I'd love to see pics when it's done Smiley

Thanks!  I will definately get around to posting a picture.  I only have to finish sewing the second sleeve on!  Woo hoo!  But a bit hard to motivate myself when it's been in the high 90s and we have no a/c in our house...  I think the heat has broken though, finally and I will get to it this week.

I'm pretty happy with it for my first sweater, but I'm just not much of a sweater knitter, it's waaaaay too much pressure to make something that will fit and look good.  I'm back to scarves and such for awhile.  Wink

I am pretty impressed with myself I made the sleeves longer and added a scaled down version of the cable on the wrists.   Grin
