Help in reading a pattern
This is a variegated vest pattern that I'm working on and need help with reading the pattern for the Front. I've finished the Back, but it seems like there is something missing between the Front and the Neck Shaping instructions. Is there? What happened to the armhole shaping? Please help.

Pattern Stitch: Rows 1 and 2: Knit. Rows 3–6: K1, p1.
Back: With smaller needles, CO 61 (67, 73, 79, 85) sts. Work in K1, P1 rib for 2", inc 9 sts evenly in last WS row—70 (76, 82, 88, 94) sts. Then, with larger needles, work in Pattern stitch for rest of Back. Work even until 13 (13 1/2, 14, 14 1/2, 15)" from beg, ending after a WS row. Armhole Shaping: BO 5 sts at beg of next 2 rows, then dec 1 st each end every other row 5 times—50 (56, 62, 68, 74) sts. Work even until 8 (8 1/2, 9, 9 1/2, 10)" above armhole—21 (22, 23, 24, 25)" from beg, ending after a WS row. Next row, BO 14 (16, 18, 20, 22) sts, work across center 22 (24, 26, 28, 30) sts and leave on holder for back of neck, BO rem sts.
Front: Work as for Back until 17 (18, 19, 20, 21)" from beg, ending after a WS row. Neck Shaping: Work across 19 (21, 23, 25, 27) sts, turn leaving rem sts on holder. Working on this side only, dec 1 st at neck edge every other row 5 times—14 (16, 18, 20, 22) sts. Work even until same length as Back to shoulder. BO all sts. To complete other side, leave center 12 (14, 16, 18, 20) sts on holder for front of neck, and work on rem sts to match first side.

You are working the same as the back until the front reaches 17 (18, 19, 20,21)" - this includes the armhole shaping as this takes place once your work reaches 13 (13 1/2, 14, 14 1/2, 15)" from the beginning.
