Jumper Pattern, help please.
Hello, wondering if anyone can help with understanding part of a pattern I have, for the back it's simple, 19 rows of rib specified in the pattern, then an increase row, then a 6 row pattern until 44cm, then it goes on to shape armholes then shape shoulders, leaving some stitches on a thread, that part I understand, the issue I am having is with the front:

it says, Work exactly as given for Back until front is 32 rows shorter than Back to shoulders, ending with a wrong side row.

How exactly will I know when it's 32 rows shorter and where do I stop the rows to make this right?

I hope someone can help me here.

many thanks in advance.

That direction is oddly written. Usually, it will say something like "work as per back until armholes" or "work as per back till work measures X."

But, I don't think you need to overthink it too much. Go to the back, which you already worked and count 32 rows back/down from the shoulder. Place a small marker here (different colored yarn) and work the front till you are at the same level/length. Then proceed with the front directions as written.
