I am wanting to make this vest..but I have read it many times and started it. But at the neck shaping..chain 36...it becomes a bit confusing. Do I work shells back to row five of the front and continue working front. And at arm holes Do I attach the armhole chains. So confusing. Can you add some more steps. And mayne a picture of eac part of vest.?
