Joining to knit in the round after knitting back & front
I'm working on the crest of the wave tank and for some reason I'm having difficulty at the joining for the body portion. I actually thought I had it correct but as I continued to knit, I realised the pattern was forming on the wrong side instead of on the right side.

Ok, here's part of the story... for the upper back and front you knit back and forth as opposed to knitting in the round. Now its time to join the upper portion at the armpits and when I join and begin to knit in the round the pattern is forming on the wrong side of the work instead of on the right side. The last four rows I have for the upper portion before joining to knit in the round are all knit rows. So I knit across, turn the work, and knit across and then do this two more times for a total of 4 rows. Then the pattern starts back after joining with knit rows and then a purl row and then the lace row in there. But instead of the lace pattern showing on the right side its showing on the wrong side. Can you picture it? I would really appreciate some help as I've tinked back just before the join about 4 times now.

Here's the pattern row that starts right after the join (keep in mind the last 4 rows before the join will be all knit rows)

Crest of The Wave II, Opaque (mltpl 14) (for rounds)
Rnds 1 & 3: k
Rnd 2: p
Rnds 4, 6, 8, 10, 12: *(k2tog)x2, yo, k1-f&b, k1, k1-f&b, yo, (k2tog-tbl)x2, k3, rep from * to end of round.
Rnds 5, 7, 9, 11: knit

Thanks for any help!
