baby sweater, how to reverse shapings for front
Hi Everyone,

I'm new here and knitting my first baby sweater (bernat baby hoodie, size 12) I finished the left front and now for the right front it says "reverse all shapings" Here is the pattern:

Left Front
**With smaller needles, cast on 25 (28-31-34) sts. Knit 5 rows, noting first row is WS and inc 2 sts evenly across last row. 27 (30-33-36) sts.

Change to larger needles and proceed in stocking st until work from beg measures 6 1/2 (7-7 3/4-8 1/2) ins [16.5 (18-19.5-21.5) cm], ending with RS facing for next row.

Shape armhole: Next row: Cast off 5 (7-8-10) sts. Knit to end of row. 22 (23-25-26) sts.

Cont even until armhole measures 2 1/2 (3-3 1/4-3 1/2) ins [6 (7.5-8-9) cm], ending with WS facing for next row.

Neck shaping: Next row: Cast off 6 (6-7-7) sts. Purl to end of row. 16 (17-18-19) sts.


Dec 1 st at neck edge on next 3 rows then every following alt row to 11 (12-12-13) sts.

Cont even until work from beg measures same length as Back to shoulders, ending with RS facing for next row. Cast off.

Right Front

Work from ** to ** as given for Left Front.

Work to correspond to Left Front, reversing all shapings.


******************
Exactly what do I do after my work measures 7 inches? Will it still be RS facing or do I reverse that too?
Thanks for your help!

When you work the other side, reverse what's facing you when you do your decreases. Your first bind off for the left front was a right side row. For the right front, have it be a wrong side row.

So I bind off 7 and the PURL to the end? Thought maybe I was supposed to knit first and then bind off at the end of the row. Thanks so much!

Yes, do it on the purl side. If you try to bind off at the end of a row, you're left with a stitch and your working yarn at the edge, with the bound off stitches between that and your knitting. Not a good place to be.
