You've got it. That's exactly right. When you repeat the rows you'll work 6 fewer sts each time. The left front is worked with the right side (public side, RS) facing you but you'll just work the right front with the wrong side facing you. The same sequence of sts will happen, work to the last 6sts, turn and work back and then repeat.
It's a very good looking pattern. I hope we get to see a photo of the finished project.
