The first marker for short-row shaping should be placed near the beginning of WS rows, not near the end.
On the last WS row before each Short-row Section, instead of “Knit to last xx sts, pm, knit to end.” it should read “Kxx sts, pm, knit to end.”
Replace the last WS row before Short-row Section 18 with:
Next row (WS) K8, pm, knit to end.
Replace Short-rows 1-6 of Short-row Section 18 with:
Short-row 1 (RS) Knit to m, remove m, wrap next st, turn.
Short-row 2 (WS) P8, pm, purl to last 2 sts, k2.
Short-rows 3-5 Rep Short-rows 1 and 2 once more then work Short-row 1 once more.
Short-row 6 Purl to last 2 sts, k2.

Work wraps together with wrapped stitches when you come to them. When you encounter a wrapped stitch when you
k2tog, you still need to hide the wrap by lifting it and working it together with the wrapped stitch and next stitch, essentially
working a k3tog.
