Is there a way to put the middle stitches for neck on a stitch holder and work both sides without cutting the yarn?

DROPS Design 12.01.2019 kl. 15:22:

Dear Lorna, if you put the middle stitches on a holder or yarn, you cannot finish both sides without cutting the yarn. You can do one side by knitting the first side before putting the stitches on teh holder, but you have to cut the yarn when you finish the other side and reattach to continue the second side. Happy Knitting!

What does (incl edge stitch each side) mean? Also, do I add the stitch to the total cast on amount. For example, cast on 74 +2 (76) or just 74? Thanks

DROPS Design 11.03.2016 kl. 14:31:

Dear Teresa, the edge sts are included in the total amount of sts, ie you have 72 sts + 2 edge sts = 74sts. Happy knitting!
