How to reverse a pattern
I need help reversing the following. If anyone can help it would be helpful. Im new at knitting and teaching myself. So I need to make a RIGHT FRONT for a child sweater.

LEFT FRONT
With smaller needles, cast on 12 (14, 14) sts. Work in k2,
p2 Rib until piece measures 1 1/2 in. [4 cm] from beg, end
with a WS row. Change to larger needles. Row 1 (RS):
Knit across, inc 2 (1, 2) sts evenly spaced across row - 14
(15, 16) sts.
Row 2: Purl.
Row 3 (RS): K7 (8, 9) sts for body and slip to a holder, k
rem 7 sts.
Work even in St st on rem 7 sts (pocket) for 5 in. [12.5
cm], end with a WS row. Slip sts to a second holder. From
RS, slip sts from first holder on to needle, cast on 7 sts (for
pocket lining). Work even in St st for 5 in. [12.5 cm], end
with a RS row.
Next Row (WS): Bind off 7 sts, k7 (8, 9).
Next Row (RS): K7 (8, 9), k across 7 sts on holder. Work
even until piece measures 8 1/2 (9 1/2, 10 1/2) in. [21.5
(24, 26.5) cm] from beg, end with a WS row.
Shape Raglan and Neck
Bind off 4 sts beg next RS row - 10 (11, 12) sts.
Next Row (WS): Purl.
Next Row: K1, k2tog, k to end - 9 (10, 11) sts.
Next Row: Purl.
Rep last 2 rows 7 (8, 9) more times, AT THE SAME TIME,
when Left Front measures 12 (14, 16) in. [30.5 (35.5,
40.5) cm] from beg, bind off 1 st at neck edge. Work even
until Left Front measures 13 1/2 (15, 17) in. [34.5 (38, 43)
cm] from beg. Bind off.

Let me see if I can help you with this.

First, I am assuming you are making a pocket on the right front also.

Since you are working from the bottom up (something I am not used to doing so if I make a mistake please jump in someone).

For the left front you are working your RS rows from the middle front out to the left side. For your right front your RS rows will be worked from the right side to the middle front.

Keeping that in mind, start the same way as you did for the left.
When you get to row 3 (RS row) knit the first 7 sititches then place the 7 (8,9) on the stitch holder (or just don't work them and leave them on the needle). contineu to work the 7 for 5 in. Bind them off on your way back, then knit the stitches you put on hold. continue as the pattern says.

For the raglan and neck shaping you will want to bind off the stitches 7 stitches at the beginning of a RS row. and when you are working the neck you will be binding off the four stitches at the beginning of a WS row.

Row 1 (RS):Knit across, inc 2 (1, 2) sts evenly spaced across row - 14(15, 16) sts.
Row 2: (WS) P7 (8,9) sts for body and slip to a holder, p rem 7 sts.
Work even in St st on rem 7 sts (pocket) for 5 in. [12.5

RS, slip sts from first holder on to needle, cast on 7 sts on the same side as the pocket (for pocket lining). Work even in St st for 5 in. [12.5 cm], end with a WS row. [They didn't say, but it seems that you need to join a new yarn when you begin the CO]
Next Row (RS): Bind off 7 sts, k7 (8, 9).
Next Row (WS): P7 (8, 9), p across 7 sts on holder. Work
even until piece measures 8 1/2 (9 1/2, 10 1/2) in. [21.5
(24, 26.5) cm] from beg, end with a RS row.
Shape Raglan and Neck
Bind off 4 sts beg next WS row - 10 (11, 12) sts.
Next Row (RS): Knit.
Next Row: P1, p2tog, p to end - 9 (10, 11) sts.
Next Row: Knit.
Rep last 2 rows 7 (8, 9) more times, AT THE SAME TIME,
when Right Front measures 12 (14, 16) in. [30.5 (35.5,
40.5) cm] from beg, bind off 1 st at neck edge (beg of a RS row). Work even until Right Front measures 13 1/2 (15, 17) in. [34.5 (38, 43)
cm] from beg. Bind off.

I actually made a tiny sweater and did the shaping and this is what I did. You basically do your BOs and shapings on the opposite row from what it originally said. That way they end up on the other side. I have not done a pocket like this in 10 years. I guess you later tack it down and maybe add a cuff edge to it. What I did ends up with the pocket toward the center front edge, is this correct? If so then I did it right.
