Ok so I am progressing well on my first sweater (yay!) ...but have come to a confusing spot in the pattern ...

I am knitting the front of Sarah Dallas's Fluffy sweater on pg. 90 of "Vintage Knits" and I can't figure out how much to knit the same as the back and what needs to be changed.

Any help?

You're allowed to quote portions of a pattern.  As is, not many people can help you without any idea of what you're having trouble with.
