I made Poetry last year with Kid Classic and loved it so much I decided to make a summer sweater using Handknit Cotton. Love it!

One mod was to start the back V shaping later so the opening would not be as deep. I started the V shaping at the same time as the cast on for the sleeves, and I may even recommend doing it even later than that. You have to speed up the neck decreases a bit to compensate for the late arrival of the shaping, but just as long as you take notes and match each side, you will be ok.

The second mod was to pick up and knit the button/neck bands with a circular, then knit 2x2 ribbing. I picked up 3 for every 4 stitches and it was perfect.
