    There are inner spokes and outer spokes, some are laced from the outside in, the others from the inside out. Sometimes the hub ends of the spokes have slightly different bends to them as well.
    If the hub has two vastly different diameters between the sprocket side and the brake side, the longer spokes go on the smaller diameter side, and the shorter spokes go on the larger diameter side, if that makes sense.

    There is a difference of diameter in the hub form one side to the other. The sprocket side being the larger.

    Sprocket side would use the shorter spokes. Just make sure there isn't actually 4 different lengths, inners and outers (they'll be a difference by about 2mm) for each side. Sometimes inners and outers will be the same length, depends on the hub configuration.
