reverse shaping
I am knitting a cardigan...

Left Front: DEcRow (RS) k2,ssk, knit to end
Inc Row (RS) k2,M1 knit to end
Shape armhole: Bind off 5 stst at beg of next Rs row (RS) Dec 1 st at beg on every Rs row 6 times
Shape neck: (RS) Decx 1 st at neck edge every 4th row 10 times, then every RS row 6 times

Shape Shoulder:
Bind off 7 sts at beg of next 3 RS rows

Right Front
Work as for left front, reversing all shaping.
How do you reverse shaping?
would the increase and decreases be at the end of rows instead of beginning?
Bind off on WS instead of RS?

I am just not sure how to proceed.

Yes, to 'reverse' shaping, all you have to do is put it on the other edge. The L front has you dec/inc at the beginning of the row, so for the R front, do it at the end of the row. You can't BO at the end of a row, so you do that at the beg of a WS row instead. The decs can all be done on RS rows though, just at the end instead of the beg of them.
