Illogical final two rows of cable jumper back
Hello, I am completely baffled by this! I now have 64 sts remaining and have reached the last two rows of the back of a cable knit jumper.
It says "Cast off 9 sts in pattern at beginning of next 2 rows as follows: pattern 3, pattern 2 together, pattern 4." Leaves 46 stitches remaining for stitch holder.
Patt3, patt 2 tog, patt 4 equals 9 stitches and to decrease/ cast off 9 times would require 9 times 9 stitches = 81 but there are only 64 there!
Am I missing something here and being stupid - please can you help? Thank you very much!
