Hello Jenna,

I'll try to explain this using the smallest size which is corresponding to the first numbers outside the parentheses. The -- mark refer to 0 which mean you don't need to do anything. Use appropriate numbers for your size.

Okay, first cast off 8 sts at the beginning of the next 6 rows. 51 sts are left on the needle.
Then cast off 0 st on the next 0 row which is nothing to be done for this part. Now there are still 51 sts left, obviously. Put these sts on a stitch holder.

Does that make sense to you? I hope it does.
Thank you for sending in the question. Love to hear back from you.
Happy Knitting!

Ratcha
