bergere de france pattern from Mag 167 Combishorts pattern 33
Anyone knitted these combishorts? I am trying to do the size 1, knitted right leg ok, but when l do the left leg, pattern says do same as right rev shapings. Which l get, the 6 stitch rib is at the beginning of the row and the increases are straight after this rib, but as to where do l begin the pattern l am confused. Now knitting this leg the 2nd time and trying to work pattern out from when l actually put the 2 legs together!! Any help much appreciated.

Yes, this is it!! Can you help at all PLEASE, as you can see by photo, there is a "slip 2, knit 1 PSSO" in the middle of where the legs meet, which works with the right leg pattern. But didn't workout with the left leg pattern l had done.

Welcome to Knitting Help!
GG, thanks very much for the link to the photo.
How many rows off are you at the join? Could you adjust the number of rows on the left leg pattern (add or subtract 1 or 2 rows) so that the patterns will meet up correctly? Perhaps you could adjust both legs to make the pattern match up. I don't think the difference in number of rows would be very noticeable, especially on a baby. Adorable pattern!

Thanks ladies for your help, l do appreciate it, the trouble is working out the actual pattern stitch to follow after l have done the 1st six stitches of rib. If l follow the right leg pattern, it began with knit 2 stitches, knit 2 tog, knit 9, ywfd knit 1,* ywfd knit 8, sl 2, knit 1, psso 2 sl sts, knit 8, ywfd k1* rep from * to * ending with yfwd, knit 9 sl1, psso, knit 2.
The trouble is l assume l have to work backwards from the left to the right, as rib cuff is at the beginning of the left leg, and l would think l would finish the last 4 stitches with a sl 1 psso, knit 2.

It looks like you should be able to work the pattern as given and the sl 2, k1, psso 2 sl sts should fall at the join. That's not what's happening?
How far off from being able to join in pattern do you think you are? Can you increase or decrease a stitch to get in frame with the pattern?

Not sure if this image worked. This is of right leg, as you can see it has the slip 2 knit 1, psso (2) in middle, which l'm sure the left leg would have too. The 1st time l did it l just started the pattern as quoted after the 6 stitches of rib, and that didn't work out when l put the legs together.
