If someone can read this part of a pattern and let me know if they think there's an error, I would appreciate it. It's for the front left piece of a baby sweater.

"With CA, ch 22. Work in dc same as back across 20 sts until 9" from beg, end wrong side row; turn."

Now, the back was worked in dc across, then turn, ch3, and dc across again, working a dc in the top of ch-3 at the end of the row. I'm assuming that I need to have the turning ch3 with this front piece as well, AND work a dc in the top of that ch-3 when I reach the end of the row, but it doesn't say that.  If I don't do it, it's starting to look a little wonky.  I'm only on the 3rd row of this, so I can still take it back to the foundation row if I need to, but I just want to make sure.  Should I be working it exactly as it says or should I just assume it's the exact same as the back piece was?

Sorry if that was an elementary question, obvious to someone else, but at 6am this morning (was killing time before I left for work), it just didn't make any sense to me.

Looking for those rubberband bracelets for causes! PM me!

I don't think there is a error here - what they want you to do is make the first 9" of the front piece the exact same way you made the back piece but working with only 20 stitches on this piece (I assume the back is wider)  If the back said to ch 3 and work a dc in the top of that ch 3 later, that's what you do - exactly like you did the back.  What the designer has done is just saved herself/himself from having to type out the exact same instructions over again.
