This is how the pattern reads exactly:
Shape neck and shoulders
At beg of row, bind off[3(4,4,4,5)sts] twice,[4(4,4,5,5)sts] twice, and then [4(4,4,5,5)sts]twice-18(18,20,20,20) sts.
Bind off rem sts.
I have 42 stitches on my needle at this time.
Any help is greatly appreciated. This is my first sweater in a long time.
