Thanks, that makes sense and worked beautifully.
Now this next section... I understand that I have to work the front separate from the back, but not really sure how to go about casting off and separating the proper stitches to the stitch holder.. maybe it's the way it's worded?
The pattern states:
R26: When the front reaches the spout split piece in half at the front. CONTINUE BOTH HALVES
SEPERATELY. Cast off first two sts at spout end in first row, and at the beginning of every following
alternate row, leave the first st on a separate needle or stitch holder
