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.
