You need to pick up 20 stitches total across the 17--so you add in 3 extra stitches. Usually you space these out evenly across the total length (in your case over the 17 stitches).

Here's a video about picking up stitches:

At about the 2:16 mark, the man talks about picking up two stitches per "row" (sic)--actually it's not per row it's more like per "column."

See if this helps answer your question.

It's going to be fine. Pick up 32 on the Left side of the neck, knit the center one, then pick up 32 on the right side of the neck. That's 65 and with the 20 along the back neck that makes 85 total. There's only 17 sts on the back neck but you need 20, so you'll have to add 3 more as you pick up along it. On the first st of the neck, pick up one in each 'leg' of the top chain where you bound off, instead of through both of them, pick up in 8 stitches, then do a double pickup in the next one, pick up in the next 8 stitches and do another double pick in the last stitch.

You will knit all these stitches 'flat', back and forth in rows, but because of the curve of the neck it'll be a lot easier to do it on a circular needle.
