Those numbers add up with the stitches for the neck bind off and the sts left for the shoulders to the 65 cast on sts.
Thank you so much. As I said this is the first time I have ever read from a picture pattern and I couldn't find any tips online on how to read the pattern. (Although I was looking at 3am and was tired) I am so excited to work on this sweater now.
