Please help with mitten pattern

Hello. I have a pattern I found online for mittens. this is the link
http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns2/accessories/lofty-mittens.html

Unfortunately I am having a problem when I get to the woman’s size thumb portion. I am having a problem with the decreasing rounds. It seems as though the stitches are off meaning the pattern is short on the number of stitches. I can’t figure it out. It’s only the thumb decrease rows. Can someone PLEASE PLEASE try to help. I’m desperate here haha.I’d just like someone familiar with decrease rounds with Double pointed needles to look at the pattern and see what’s wrong. I would really appreciate it. Thanks:wall:

[SIZE=2]Rnd 37: k16, sl 2 tog knitwise, sl 12 sts onto scrap yarn to be worked later, k1, p2sso, [COLOR=Red]K2[/COLOR], p1, k4, p2, k9, p2, k4, p1. [42 sts]
Rnd 38 & 39: k19, p1, k4, p2, k9, p2, k4, p1. [/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana][SIZE=2][COLOR=Black]I think the K2 is a misprint,it should not be there.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]That would give you the 42 sts you need.
[FONT=Verdana][SIZE=2]Did you end up with 44 sts?

[FONT=Verdana][SIZE=2]If you look at RND 38 & 39 there is no K2.[/SIZE][/FONT]
