I used your suggestions for picking up extra stitches around the armhole and then decreasing to the right number on the next row, and I had no armhole holes! Yay!

For future reference, though, Techknitting recently had an article on that very subject, and I plan to use the tips the next chance I have.
Here's the final result, with and without the cowl:
