I am sewing this lovely vest together, but the back is not level with the front. It looks strange and feels uncomfortable. The dimensions are accurate - what am I doing wrong?

Where is the second (before the "cast off in ribbing?

The instructions say to work from to , which means you will work form the double asterisk to the double asterisks then cast off. So, in this pattern work rows 1 and 2 then cast off.

I like it, I want to make it, but the amounts seem excessive. I looked up the yarn and it is in fact 261 yards per ball and the smallest size requires 7, that's 1,821 yards for a vest! I've made extra large sweaters that didn't need this much yarn.
