Help with Lett Lopi Vest
Hi! Im a beginner, and Im just getting started on the Lett Lopi Vest Vormorgun. Its my first more complicated project (ie non-scarf...) and Im having trouble reading the pattern. Its worked bottom up and in-the round.

For the last part of the body, it says "Do not work last 5 (5) 6 (6) 7 sts of last rnd." It then goes on with the yoke of the vest.
What does "do not work" mean? Slip the stitches?

Id be really grateful for any help!

I think this is your pattern? http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...lett-lopavesti I'm not sure what happens with those stitches it says not to work. Someone else will.

Hi and welcome!
The sts that aren't worked. the last 5 (5) 6 (6) 7sts will form part of the underarm. The next directions tell you to cast off (instead of cast of) those sts and several more. The reason you stop before the end of round is to center the underarm cast off over the side marker. That way the side shaping will be centered below the underarm and not slightly askew.
So proceedl on to the next directions:

Cast off 9 (10) 11 (12) 13 sts for left underarm. Work front 61 (64) 67 (70) 73 sts.
Cast off 9 (10) 11 (12) 13 sts for right underarm. Work back 61 (64) 67 (70) 73 sts.
and you should be fine with two gaps in the round for the underarm. Later you'll cast on over those gaps for the yoke.
Very pretty pattern. I like the yoke and it's a good challenge as a first big project.
