It's super easy, but I'm doubting myself the whole way.  I started small - a sweater for my 4 year old.  Here is the pattern:

On the "Sleeves" part:
When it comes to descreasing as for raglan armhole shaping for back - just do the dec on either side like I do for the back?  For some reason that doesn't make sense to me.

On the "Finishing" part:
Set in raglan sleeves - what does that mean?

Thank you!

Yes, the decreases are just like the back. That's what makes the sleeves raglan style.

That just means that you should attach the sleeves to the body of the sweater. Usually by mattress stitch.

Great.  Thank you.  That's pretty much what I thought, but I just am not trusting myself to actually make a sweater for some reason, lol.

Yeah, do the sleeve decreases just like the back.
"Set in" means to sew the sleeves into the sweater.
