Steek Question

I'm trying to figure out what patterns would work well on the yoke of my sweater. I realized that if I BO say 7 sts for each armhole, then CO 7, those 14 sts will then be my steek stitches. So I'll "lose" those stitches. In my case, my 204 sts will turn into 190 sts. Right?

Does it matter that those stitches are "lost" (in terms of fit)? Or should I CO 28 sts to make up for the 14 steek sts?

You'll lose those stitches for your pattern, and make the shoulders a little bit narrower.
