V Neck Neckband help
Hi everyone, could someone please help me with a pattern problem? I'm still a beginner knitter and I've got to nearly the end of a cricket sweater and I'm completely stuck!
When I did the back it told me (after shaping) to slip last 45 stitches onto a thread.
Now when I have come to the neckband instructions, there are instructions for picking up on the left and right side of V neck which I get but the instructions for knitting across the back neck total 77 stitches. I'm totally lost because I only have 45! I've followed the pattern to the letter and as far as I know I've done everything right.
I'm hoping its something obvious ... can anyone please help? The pattern is the King Cole DK 2940. Thanks :-)
