Problem with this pattern

I love this pattern - however - I can't seem to get past Round 9 - is anyone having difficulties with it? Everything seems ok up until there. And then the stitch count goes off between the valleys & the peaks. I must be doing something wrong. I looked & didn't find a pattern correction.

Please advise.

Rippling vest - row 42

The pattern says I should have 16 peaks and Valleys, I ended up with 24 peaks and 24 valleys at the end of this row. What did I do wrong?
