    Julianna, the Cravenleigh looks wonderful. From what I see, I don\\\’t think the \\\”hook and eye\\\” issue is the real problem with the neck. The fabric of the shawl collar looks tight and restricted. Even with blocking, I\\\’d think you need to pick up more stitches around the shawl collar area of the band so that it produces a full and rolling neckline instead of such a \\\”tight\\\” look. Otherwise, it looks great!
