    I’m having a pretty difficult time getting this pattern to have the correct curve. When I followed all instructions to the letter, the necklace puckered all along the inside rim when tried on. I am currently experimenting with continuing the every 10th stitch decrease on the inside rim of the necklace throughout the pattern. I think it is going to work, however it creates less of a smooth curve and more geometric lines along the neckline. I think it works with the pattern, though.
