  5. The count is not correct on the armhole shaping. For large size I've got a stitch count of 99....it states I should have 83 stitches after first row of armhole shaping. 99 taking 9 off at beginning and 8 at the end....leaves 82 stitches. What is the correct count?

  7. For x-large size the beginning chain needs to be 114 , not 113 , to get 111 stitches after using 3 for the turning chain.
