First v-neck - need help
Hi, this is my first v-neck vest, and I'm not quite sure if I'm doing this right. Here's what I'm working on:

Shape Armhole and V-Neck - 64sts on needle
Row 1 (RS): Bind off 4 sts, k26 sts, k2 tog, join a 2nd ball of A, k2 tog, k to end.
Row 2 (WS): Bind off 4 sts, working both sides at once, with separate balls of yarn, p across both sides of neck.
Row 3: K1, k2 tog, k to last 2 sts of first side, k2 tog; on second side, k2 tog, k to last 3 sts, k2 tog, k1.
Row 4: Purl.
Repeat Rows 3 and 4 twice more. Continue as established, working neck decs every other row 9 times more - 13 sts remain for each shoulder.
When armhole measures same as back, bind off.

Sew right shoulder seam.
From RS, with smaller needles and A, pick up and k45 sts evenly spaced along left front neck edge, (pick up and k1, place marker, pick up and k1) at center of V-Neck, pick up and k45 sts evenly spaced along right front neck, and 24 sts across back neck - 116 sts.
Row 1 (WS): Work in k2, p2 Rib to 2 sts before marker, p2 tog, slip marker, p2tog, work in rib to end.
Row 2: Work in rib to 2 sts before marker, k2 tog, slip marker, k2 tog, work in rib to end.
Rep last 2 rows once, then Row 1 once more. Change to B and bind off in rib. Sew left shoulder and neckband seam.

The problem that I'm having is in the bold area .... I end up with 2 more stitches on the right needle than I have on the left needle.. is there an error in this pattern or is it supposed to be that way?
