The recommendation to knit the twinned stitch and original stitch for the last back neck shaping SRT stands as best practice.

Back neck dart increases - 7, increases worked every fourth row WATCH THIS COUNT Before the faux set in sleeve srts are done you can calculate the back stitches by counting the stitches from shoulder marker to shoulder marker and subtracting the faux set in sleeve SRT count*4 but make sure you include any additional saddle increases you will do before the faux set-in sleeve setup is done.
