I mean that I ended up with 4 more stitches then would have been called for after all the decreases. For me it was the two stitches I crossed (that would have decreased 2) and then I didn’t do the next row where you would decrease 2. Math told me that I had to have a multiple of 4 between the first of the two knits over the back middle and the first of 2 knit over the front middle. following the directions I would only have had a multiple of 2, so that 4 extra stitches gave me 2 on each side. Hope that makes sense!
ETA- it looks like this post is just random, but I had replied via email to w question about this, the question just seems to have disappeared!
