Need Help in Reading the Pattern for Cardi

I need help in understanding the pattern for my cardigan. Here is the link of the my pattern:

I am having a hard time understanding the side edgings and side seams instructions. For the side edgings I am confused as the direction of my single crochet. Will my single crochet starts towards the left from the foundation chain or going upwards?

Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you once again.
