I am trying to cast off neckline for the front piece of the sweater. It says:
“Cast off the middle 5 sts for V-neck and complete each side separately. Cast off 1 st on neckline on every other row: 1 st 17 times - 32 sts left on shoulder”
I have casted off 5 sts in the middle. So I will have a gap in the middle. How do I finish the sides separately? Then cast off 1 st 17 times means Do I have to cast off 1st each side for 17 times? and the total number of stitches on both the sides should be 32?
