"with right side facing"
When a pattern tells you to rejoin yarn, with right side facing -- does that mean to start with a knit or purl row?? I assumed that "right side" meant the knit side of the garment, and that I should attach yarn and start knitting. (I'm working the left front of the daisy baby cardigan). However, the seed stitch edge is not right in this area, and I am confounded by the instruction to shape the neck reversing all the shaping from the right side! Does that mean to read the right side instructions and do them backwards (i.e. if the right side says BO 6 stitches, knit to last 3 stitches and k2 together k1, do I do those in reverse (ending with a BO of 6 stitches)?

I need to be sent back to remedial knitting school!

I think you have the right idea about doing everything backwards for the opposite side. Basically, on the same row you bound off on on side, you want to match it, mirror image on the other side. It may mean binding off on the purl row. If it's impossible to do it the same row, then do it one row later (or earlier).

Yes, "with right side facing," in stockinette stitch, means the knit-side is facing, and you'll begin with a knit row.
