Need help with Zimmermann surprise jacket

my math doesn’t work. And I am sure I am doing something wrong.

It says to cast on 160 sts.

First row:
K34, sl 1, K2 tog, psso, K86, sl1, K2 tog, psso, K34. Doesn’t this add up to 164?
Hope someone can help. Thanks in advance. Maria

Count your stitches. If you have finished the first row and you have 156 stitches you are correct. I’ve made several of these and they always come out right. Here’s a spread sheet that someone made and it’s on the internet.

I think I got it Jan. I was sl1 st and k1 for the psso. Thank you

You’re welcome. It’s easy to get mixed up. :wink:
