I am working on this pattern as my first ever project.
http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=2993 (baby kimono from Bernat)

I am at the Shape Front part. I have decreased to 35 stitches. I understand the next instruction to decrease every 4th row to 31 stitches. Then it says to end on a RS row. It's garter stitch, and you make both sides of the front the same. How do I know which is the right side?

Am I assuming correctly that I need to start shaping the armhole on the opposite side of the angle of the front flap?

Also, it then says to decrease 1 stitch at front edge on every following 4th row. Am I back to decreasing on the angled side of the flap, or am I still working on the armhole?

Sorry if these seem like dumb questions. I'd just hate to get into it and have to frog it, so a little verification would make me feel a lot more confident that I'm interpreting right.  Huh

In garter stitch you can pick the side you want to be the RS, the one you think will look better. Yes, the armhole edge is the opposite side from the front edge, and the 'shape front' instructions done for the front edge. So BO for the underarm at the beg of the row on the other side of that edge, and continue the decreasing on the front edge. All you do for the armhole is BO the sts, there aren't any decs there.
