Help with knitting neckband please!


I cannot understand this part of my pattern Can anyone help?

pick up and knit 15 sts along right side of neck,[COLOR=“Red”] 22 sts from 13 cast off sts at back of neck[/COLOR], 15 sts along left side of neck. 52 sts.

It’s the cast-off bit I can’t understand.

Many thanks, :slight_smile:

Welcome to KnittingHelp!
When you finished the back of the sweater, did you cast off 13sts at the very end of the instructions? That’s where the instructions for the neckband are asking you to pick up sts. You’ll need to pick up 22sts in the 13sts that were cast off so you will need to pick up in the stitch and between sts.

Thank you very much! I have now managed it.
