Need help on reversing the shaping in a pattern
Hi, I am making my first sweater ever and need help in figuring this out. I am making the baby yoda from and the directions for the front pieces are as follows:

Front Left
Cast on 45 sts.
Rows 1- 6 moss stitch.
Rows 7-40 stocking stitch, starting with a knit or right side row.
Row 41 Knit 1, cast off 1 knit to end of row.
Row 42 Purl.
Rows 43-71 Repeat rows 41 and 42 total of 16 decreases, 29 stitches remain.
Row 72 Cast off first 7 stitches and purl to end of row.
Row 73 Knit to last stitch and turn.
Row 74 Cast off first 8 stitches (including the unknitted stitch on the right needle) and purl to end of row.
Place remaining 14 live stitches on a stitch holder.

Front Right
Follow instructions for front left, reversing shaping.

My question is on the reversing. What happens in row 41 onwards? Do I need to do Row 41 as Knit to end leaving last two stitches, cast off 1 and knit the last stitch?

That's what I'd do if that helps! I guess after a few rows you'll be able to see if it is going to work or not and take it from there.

I never heard of casting off 1 st in from the edge, very odd. Instead of `cast off 1' you might want to k2tog, k1 at the end of the row. On rows 72 and 74 you can't cast off that many sts at the end of the row anyway, so you have to do it at the beginning of the next rows.
