I've started the AG basic casual dress with variations. Per the directions, I've placed markers and am increasing either side of them. After five knit rows (purling back) I have 86 stitches on my needle. After two more knit rows with increases I will be at 102 stitches instead of the 100 as stated in the pattern. Where have I erred?

Because I'm not computer literate, here's what the pattern says:
CO 46 stitches...K7, M (Marker), K9, M, K14, M, K9, M, K7=46 sts. Inc. before and after each marker (8 sts inc. each row). Continue until there are 14, 22, 28, 22, 14=100 stitches. However, it will take seven rowsx8sts plus the original 46 which= 102 sts. I've added/counted/multiplied/subtracted numerous times, and can't figure out what I'm supposed to do. The answer is probably so simple I'll be embarrassed!

I have decided to do that pattern as well, and I don't think you are wrong in your calculations. I get the same total (102sts). I look forward to an answer as well. From what I have worked out by just looking at the increases, there are only 7 increases at what is the back two openings instead of 8. Maybe that is where the error occurs.

There are four markers called for in the pattern which says to inc both sides of each marker, which equals an increase of eight sts on each knit row--that, too, is stated in the pattern.
