It is an Easy Tank Top pattern by Lorna Miser and I've knitted the back until the armhole shaping part; that begins with:
Bind off 3 stitches at the beginning of the next 2 rows
Next Row: K2, ssk, work in pattern (which is 2 knits, followed by 2 purls) until last 3 stitches, K2 tog, K2.
Thinking it was an error, I went to several sites that list the pattern, but all I found was the same instructions, unfortunately
