how many stitches to start

I have done the crochet provisional co to start my Mermaid. The number of sts I need to start is 181. I am going to start after the collar area. If I subtract the 4 decreases and the 23 bo I need 154 sts. Is that right?

That is what I did - took the number of initial stitches, took off the collar stitches and increases in the collar area, then started with a provisional cast on.

(Project is on Ravelry with photos.)

54Just found this blog. I'm new to blogging so please foregive. I'm not sure exactly how this works. I have become an avid fan of Hanne Falkenberg's designs recently. I started her Swing skirt about a month ago (hopefully only the 1st of many of her projects I will attemp) & I'm 3/4's of the way through it. I would love to hear from others who have made this pattern or are working on it or any of her patterns. This is not really a response to "how many stitches to start", but I don't know how to list an original post. Sorry! I could use some help with this from anybody. Thanks.

Hi I am trying to find someone who is willing to sell their HR Mermaid pattern once they have finished with. I see you are knitting this design. Would you be willing to sell to me.
