I am getting ready to start one of the new berroco patterns in booklet 2666 called Johanna.
I understand the whole pattern except the first part LOL!
There are only 2 sizes for this here is the first 2 rows, row 2 makes no sense to me:
With MC CO 68(76) sts
Row1 (RS): K68(76), cast on 5 sts 73(81) sts
Row2 (WS): P73(79), cast on 5sts- 78(86) sts. Working in STst, continue in this manner to cast on 5 sts at the beg of the next 18 rows, etc…
The issue I have is that if I only P79 it will leave 2 sts on the right side needle and a CO in the middle of them leaves a gap, plus on the smaller size you P the same number you K. Through the rest of the pattern there are sections that you K or P less than the actual number of sts you have on the needle then turn it, to create the points, but this first section is the center back and no points.

Thank you for any help.
