I am knitting my toddler son a swaeter for Christmas. I don't understand this : Next row (right Side) k17, sts, turn on these sts only. Cast off 2 sts. beg. next 2 ws rows. Cast off rem 13 sts.. Return to rem sts. slip 11 sts to holder for back neck, rejoin yarn, work 2nd half to match , reversing.

What does it mean to turn?

What does rejoin yarn, work 2nd half to match mean?

Thanks for your help.

Turn means turn your work like you were at the end of a row only it looks like you're going to be doing a neck edge. K 17, turn and BO 2 sts on the next row and once more at the same edge, then bind off all stitches.

Then take a yarn end and knit the other side of the neck the same way.
