I actually made a tiny sweater and did the shaping and this is what I did. You basically do your BOs and shapings on the opposite row from what it originally said. That way they end up on the other side. I have not done a pocket like this in 10 years. I guess you later tack it down and maybe add a cuff edge to it. What I did ends up with the pocket toward the center front edge, is this correct? If so then I did it right.
