Hi, I'm working a baby's coat.

I finished working the Left Front, now I started the Right Front and am half way through it.

I'm at the level of shaping the armhole.

However, I'm a bit confused about the following:
Next row - Cast off 2sts, *p2, k2, rept from * to last st, k1. (this was easy and I worked it out)

Then it continues:
Next row - Patt to the last 2sts, k2tog.
Continue working to correspond with Left Front reversing all shapings.

The pattern to be worked in reverese is this:
1st row - cast off 2 sts, c2f, k1, *k1, c2f, k1, rept from * to last 2sts, k2 (I guess this should be left out since i already cast off 2 sts in the previous row given)
2nd row - k1, *k2, p2, rept from * to last st, k1.
3rd row - k2tog, * k1, c2f, k1, rept from * to end.
4th row - k1, * p2, k2, rept from * to end

You're to reverse the shaping, not reverse the stitch pattern. So on the L front if you decreased at the beginning of the rows, you dec at the end of the rows instead. The example was given for you in the 'next row' instructions - Patt to the last 2sts, k2tog.

so like you said i will continue normally only reversing the dec and k2tog, right?

Yes, put it on the other end of the row.
