I just finished the knitty Amelia cardigan and I really like it. I am already starting a new one, for me this time. How can I modify the neckline on this to come up a little higher in the front?

Congratulations! I'd love to see pics.

I haven't knit this myself, but it looks like you could make the neckline higher by just delaying the start of your neckline shaping. Where it says "when work measures ___ inches from joining row," just add the increased amount of neckline coverage you want and begin your bind offs later than you did with the first sweater. It looks like the neckline shaping ends before the raglan decreases do, so you should be able to eliminate some of that straight section instead of playing with the amount of decreases in the shaping section. Hope that helps -- give a shout if it doesn't.
