my math doesn't work. And I am sure I am doing something wrong.

It says to cast on 160 sts.

First row:
K34, sl 1, K2 tog, psso, K86, sl1, K2 tog, psso, K34. Doesn't this add up to 164?
Hope someone can help. Thanks in advance. Maria

Count your stitches. If you have finished the first row and you have 156 stitches you are correct. I've made several of these and they always come out right. Here's a spread sheet that someone made and it's on the internet.

You're welcome. It's easy to get mixed up. ;)
