am i misreading pattern?
hi everyone

i am knitting a hoodie
back was easy to do and front has been fine so far but now i am perplexed

the back ends with :
Repeat these 2 rows to 52 sts
Continue until armhole measures 8.5/21.5cm
Shape shoulder: Cast off 7sts on next 2
rows and 8 sts following 2 rows.
Leave 22sts on holder for back of neck.

that was fine - --- now i am working front and have got to line that says shape shoulder as for back - - BUT i currently only have 16 stitches on my needles!

sorry for the length of this post but here is pattern for front:

Decrease at armhole edge as for back on next and
following 7 alternate rows till 54 sts ending with RS row
NR: p27 finishing halfway through , turn, and continue on these sts for right front, leaving remaining sts on holder
Continue until armhole measures 6/15cm ending after a knit row
Shape neck: work to last 5 sts and leave
these sts on holder
Decrease 1 at neck edge of next 6 rows.
Continue until armhole measures same as back
Shape shoulder as for back

so as far as i can see i am correct
27 stitches minus 5 =22 then 6 rows of decreases = 16

how then do i shape shoulder same as for back?

i hope i am missing something obvious

thanks for your time reading this - i know its long
