Hi Chris,

Let's see....Are those stitches at the back of the neck, to be later knit on for a neck edge? Cut the yarn if the back is complete, leaving enough of a tail to sew a shoulder seam, or to do anything else you might want to do from this point.

Congratulations on working on your first sweater!!
