I'm going to be making this for the husband:
http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/us/pattern.php?id=3171&lang=us

only instead of the deer chart with the pattern, it's getting the fornicating deers. I've already worked that out, but I'm puzzled about a bit in the pattern that says :

"When piece measures 23-24-25 (28-30) cm / 9"-9½"-9 3/4" (11"-11 3/4") work M.2 and then M.3 (start at arrow and work sts for front piece, start at arrow again and work sts for back piece), at the same time when piece measures 30-31-32 (35-37) cm / 11 3/4"-12 1/4"-12½" inc 5 sts on each side (these sts are for cutting later and should not be incorporated into pattern). Remember knitting gauge. "

I understand the first bit, but I don't understand the bit about cutting. I thought cutting knitting was a massive no-no!
or am I not understanding a knitting term?!

Look up 'steek'. That's where you knit a sweater completely asa tube, then cut along the extra stitches to make armholes in this case. Right at the very beginning it says, "Body: Work sweater on circular needles and cut up for armhole afterwards. " Sometimes you cut up the center to make a cardigan out of a tube.

It's easier to do the fair isle pattern that way.
