Oi! I need help with a pattern, Please.
So I am somewhat new to knitting and decided to make a poncho for my niece so I am chose an easy pattern from Bernat. Here are the directions so you know what I am doing:

The instructions are written for smallest size. If changes are necessary for larger sizes the instructions will be written thus ( ).

Make 2 pieces alike.
Cast on 65 (73-85-97) sts.
1st row: (WS). K1. *P1. K1. Rep from * to end of row.
Rep last row of seed st pat twice more.

Next row: (RS). K2. K2tog. Knit to last 4 sts. Sl1. K1. psso. K2.
Beg with a purl row, work 3 rows in stocking st.
Rep last 4 rows 10 times more. 43 (51-63-75) sts.
Next row: (RS). K2. K2tog. Knit to last 4 sts. Sl1. K1. psso. K2.
Next row: Purl.
Rep last 2 rows 5 (9-14-19) times more. 31 (31-33-35) sts. Cast off knitwise.

FINISHING: Sew center Front and center Back seams

I am using the middle size starting with CO 85. Now here is my problem. I made both pieces according to the pattern, one edge with the k2. K2tog. and the other edge with the Sl1. K1. psso. K2. patten. Now I assumed that when sewing the seams I would sew the identical edges together. in other words Sl1. K1. psso. K2. edges together and K2. K2tog edges together BUT they don't fit.

Should I have reversed the pattern for it to work? Did I assume wrong? What do I do? Can some one help me please?
