Hate to be so dumb--where do you find the neck measurement on the pattern? Are you talking about MY neck measurement?

The yarn called for is Squoosh Fiberarts Rapture-Sport-6-7 sts per inch. Pattern calls for 6.5 sts per inch and I get 5.5 with my sport wt yarn. I'm a bit confused by Sue's comments and am ready to give up on making this top down. I've only successfully made ONE vest top-down; everything else I've frogged.

To find any measurement in any pattern, divide the sts by the pattern's gauge. Take the cast on number given for the size 39 and divide it by the 6 sts per inch. That gives you a measurement. Then take that measurement times your gauge of 5 sts per inch and that's how many sts will give you the same measurement. Is it closer to one of the smaller sizes, or smack in between?
