I'm working on the cap sleeved summer shift from speed knitting and it tells me when i get ready to shape the armholes, that I will be knitting flat. To place the stitches from the front on a large stitch holder and work the back with the short one, then tells me how many stitches I should have. (all of that is step 8)

Where I get confused...it says:
Step 9: Bind off 3 stitches at the beginning of the next 2 rows.

I'm confused because if the top is facing me, I'm looking at the right side of the work and my working yarn is on the LEFT side. Am I supposed to do something else first?

If you really want to work with the right side facing you, you can cut the yarn from where it is and start it over on the right edge of your knitting.

Or, since you already have yarn in place, you can still bind off 3 stitches on the next 2 rows starting with the purl side.

You may not need to cut the yarn. Go back to the start of the last row you did and now you're on the RS and the right edge, then BO the sts on that row, and work across it. Turn and BO at the beginning of the row and go across.
