Your Ishbel is lovely!
Thanks for the kind comments about the Gathered pullover, and sorry for taking so long to get back to you (I'm knee deep in exams!). For the chest increases/decreases, you don't have to alter the stitch number, just knit right through. As for making the neck v less wide, I didn't cast off as many stitches at the shoulders as was called for, and picked up fewer stitches around the neck. If you want the specific measurements I can dig them out for you in a few weeks!

Beautiful scarves! And I love the cardigan in the last two posts as well. I think I need to make myself one of those!!
