Sweater Pattern Help
Hi, everyone! I am in the middle of knitting my first adult swaeter and I have gotten to a knitting road block. I am about finish with the back and need help with the shoulder shaping instructions. The pattern says:

Bind off 7 sts at beg of next 2 rows. 61 sts. (this I got)
Next row (RS): Bind off 7 sts, K until there are 11 sts on right needle and turn, leaving rem sts on holder,. Work each side of the neck separately. (got this too)
(here's the trouble) Bind off 4 sts at beg of next row.
Bind off rem 7 sts.
With RS facing, rejoin yarn to rem sts, bind off center 25 sts, K to end.
Complete to match first side, reversing shaping.

OK, when the pattern calls to bind off 4 sts then remaining 7 sts, does that mean bind off all 11 sts in that row or bind off 4, knit remaining sts, turn then bind off the last 7. And what does the pattern mean "reverse shaping"? I'm thankful for any clarifiication.
