I'm knitting this pattern.

It's the engine #9 pullover.
I'm working on the sleeves and the pattern just doesn't make sense to me.
I just started them so maybe it will once I get along, but just in case it still doesn't, I don't want to get stuck!
The part I don't get is in shaping the underarm and raglan top.
The pattern says to "work raglan shaping as for back until 12 (14) (16) (16) (16) stitches remain."
This I don't understand.
1) How do I know which edge should be the right raglan pattern and which is the left raglan pattern?
Sleeves don't really have lefts and rights...do they?
2) If there are only 16 stitches remaining at the top of the sleeve, how on earth am I supposed to seam it around the sleeve hole and how is the child going to fit his arm in there? :rofl:
Am I reading it all wrong? Can anyone explain it to me?
Thanks so much!
