# Help! Buttery soft baby set/Raglan sweater

I am desperate for some help. I am working on my first baby sweater and am stuck.

I will post a part of the pattern where I am stuck on.

Next row (RS) *K to within 2 sts of next marker, k2tog tbl (through the back loop), sl marker, k2tog; rep from * across all markers, k to end (8 sts decreased).
Next row (WS) Purl. Rep last 2 rows 14 times in all;

Does this mean that it will be 28 rows in total? Starting with Next Row(RS)

AT THE SAME TIME, when armhole measures 2 ½”,

My armhole measured 2 1/2" after the 14 row, so I continued with the pattern.

shape neck as foll: Keeping to raglan shaping as est, after working first 4 sts at beg of next 2 rows place them on holders, then dec 1 st at beg and end of every other row (neck edges) 2 times. On last WS row, p2tog before and after each marker. Sl rem sts on holder.

I have a total of 63 rem sts counting the ones on holders from the sides.

Neckband With smaller needles, PU 49 sts along neck edge, including sts on holders.

How do I pick up 49 stitches if I have 63 on holders??

Work in k 1, p 1 rib for 6 rows. Bind off in rib.

Any help would be truly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Yes

Each group of ‘held’ stitches should be on a separate holder or piece of yarn, rather than counted as a total of held stitches.

When you pick up stitches for the neck, you’ll only be using the stitches that were held from the back of the neck. (or the front and back if it’s a pullover) So count how many stitches are live and then pick up enough stitches to reach 49, dividing them evenly on each side of the neck. You won’t need to pick up one stitch for each stitch of the sweater, you’ll skip some here and there to reach the correct number.
