dec 20(20-22-22-24) sts evenly spaced across – 82(90-100-108-118) sts

I do k2tog after every 5 stitch?
Which size are you making? Your method wont give you enough decreases for any of the sizes. You would need to do something like k3, k2tog for the smallest size, or k4, k2tog for the largest. The ones in between you can do k3, k2tog, with an occasional k4 between the decs. Take the number of sts you're starting with and divide by the number you need to decrease (20-22-22-24). Then subtract 2 and that will tell you how many to knit before the k2tog.

As for the front, trying to figure it out in your head will drive you crazy. It's a lot easier to see how it will all work out once you get to that point when you have the yarn and needles in your hands. Just take it all one step at a time and it won't be as hard as you think.
