Row 2: P2(4-6-7-9), work Row 2 of Twisted Rib over 7 sts, * p7(8-9-10-11), work
Row 2 of Twisted Rib over 7 sts, rep from * 4 times more, p2(4-6-7-9). Work even in
pat as established until piece measures 16 1/2” from beg, end on WS.

This is from the pattern. I bolded the part that says how long it should be from the cast on. Is this what you were looking for? That's a really nice sweater.
