Oh, Margie, I'm so sorry. Isn't it frustrating to spend time, money and energy and not have it turn out quite right due to something beyond your control? I just added to the neck piece with another piece - of course, I had another seam that way and I wasn't using really beautiful fabric like you are. Mine was just a poly knit. Good luck!!

I have just had the same problem. The neck band is 3.5 inches [9cm] too short. I wish I had read this before starting the pattern. I hope I can save my beautiful merino wool knit by making the hem wider. Now I know why I stopped using McCalls patterns.

Were you able to solve the problem - I purchased the pattern but have not laid it out or sewn it yet. I guess it depends just how much shorter the neck area is - if its an inch or so, then perhaps they expect you to stretch it a bit, but if it is off by a lot then perhaps its a drafting error in the pattern.
