Aran Duffle Coat by Judith L. Swartz

I am having a problem. This patter is from back in 1999 so I know others have made this. My problem is the back of the coat. The instructions say:

•Back: With larger needles, CO 92 (100, 108, 11 6) sts. Work
k1, p1 rib for 5 rows. Patt set-up: (RS) Beg with Row 1 of patts,
work moss st over 4 (8, 12, 16) sts, [twist st over 2 sts, superimposed double wave cable over 16 sts, twist st over 2 sts, crossed cable over 12 sts] 2 times, twist st over 2 sts, superimposed double wave cable over 16 sts, twist st over 2 sts, and moss st over rem 4 (8, 12, 16) sts. Work as established until piece measures 28 (30, 32, 32)” (71 [76, 81.5, 81.5] cm) from beg. BO all sts.

The CO is 108, but adding everything up, there are only 88 stitches notated. This is a difference of 20 stitches. No multiple of anything, so something is weird. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?? I feel like it is probably something really goofy that I am missing, but maybe someone can help me?

Thanks in advance!

I get 108

12 moss
[2 + 16 + 2 + 12] = 32 x 2 = 64
2 + 16 + 2 = 20
12 moss

12 + 64 + 20 + 12 = 108
