If anyone has the Charmed knits book, i'm working on the weasley sweater pattern that starts on page 2. and making it in the child large size... my initial cast on was 74 sitches, which is the same number i have now on my needles.
Anyway, i'm on page 4 under "shape neck opening" where it says (i'm going to modify it so everyone knows how many stitches i should have on here): "Next row (RS): K45, slip last 16 sts worked onto stitch holder for center neck, k29."
correct me if i'm wrong, but doesn't that add up to 76 stitches? also, does it mean that i slip the next 16 stitches onto a stitch holder then knit the last 27???
