I am working on a vest from Lion brand "Vest in a jiffy No 20064" and
am at the Shoulder and Back neck shaping part and do not get it:(
Please help - it says Cont in pattern, bind off 6 sts at beg of next row, work 7 sts, join 2nd ball of yarn and bind off center 25 sts, work to end. Next row (ws) Bind off 6 sts at beg of row, work to end. Working both sides at once, bind off 7 sts at beg of next 2 rows. I love to knit, however, the directions seem to be my biggest hurdle to completing projects. I was able to know a wonderful sweater with your help this Spring, which was greatly appreciated, so I'm hoping for help with this much simpler vest. Thanx so much.

At this point you're going separate the shoulders and BO sts for the neck. BO 6 sts, knit in pattern the next 7 sts. Drop the yarn you're working with and add another strand to BO the next 25 st for the neck and knit the last sts with it. Turn and BO 6 sts, knit to the neck sts, drop that yarn, pick up the yarn on the other side of the neck and finish the row. Next row, BO 7 sts, and I think that's it for that shoulder, pick up the other and finish the other shoulder. Turn and BO 7sts, and you're done.
