Of course I wish you luck!

salmonmac's excellent reminder about using a lifeline when you get to where your pattern stitch reversed sides is a great one. I like unwaxed dental floss for a lifeline.

And it's worth it to take a look at the front and back of each row as you unravel for a better feel for what each looks like. Ripping out is a fact of life in knitting, and learning how to "read" your stitches will help you be more confident when you have to do it.

Darcy,

Is this it? http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/long-vest-3

It's lovely!

The pattern page on Ravelry provide a link to an errata correction to the pattern, just wanted to pass that along as a FYI.
