Yes, I agree--that dosn't sound right to me, either.

Hmmm...I don't quite understand *these* instructions myself:
...then 3 sts once, and 2 sts twice until all 128 sts have been worked.
Do you? If you can make sense of that for me, then maybe I'll be able to understand the row count. But yes, if it really only is asking for 40 rows total, that would be a definite problem to match up with the back.

Wow....that is weird. I would, if I were you, just make sure the shaping of my front mirrored what I did for the back. It sounds to me like you have the good sense to know when something doesn't jive...maybe someone who's made this sweater will have more input...? I'm going to look at the pattern now and see if I can make more sense of it!!
