Reading pattern instructions

Help! I am new to knitting and would like to know when patt. states right or left side are we talking as looking at it from front or from wearing?
:wink:

As the item is being worn. That’s easy to see when you knit the back of a sweater, but mind tricky when you’re doing the fronts.

thank you, I am doing baby cardigan for my new grand daughter Ava and so want it to be perfect!

Congratulations on your new granddaughter!
