K11, bind off 2 stitches, cast on 14 and p these new sts.

how do i bind off 2 sts in the middle? i wind up with an extra stitch that will wind up being in the middle of the armhole the next round when i have to purl over it...

Do you bind off on one round and then cast on the stitches on the next round? If that's the case, you should be able to bind off the two and keep going.

Usually there isn't any purling in circular knitting; or are you going to work back and forth at this point. I guess I'm confused.

it says to bind off 2 then cast on 14, same round in that exact order... the pattern calls for purling practically the whole time aside from some increases...

Ok, so you're knitting along, bind off 2. That leaves a stitch on your needle with the yarn attached, right?

I'm still not understanding the logic in this. You could cast on 14 after the left over stitch, turn and purl back on them, but I can't envision how this would work.

You could also slip that stitch back on the left needle and cast on the stitches to the left needle and then work them. Hmmm. That might be the answer.

Is there a link to the pattern or a picture?

I imagine they're wanting you to use a cast-on method that puts the stitches onto your left needle so that you can immediately purl those stitches. So the knit-on cast on or cable cast on. Backward loop wouldn't work for this because that puts the new stitches onto your right needle and they aren't worked until the following row.

Thanks so much for your help! i think i do need to slide it over even though the pattern doesn't call for it... I am going to wind up frogging this project and starting from the beginning again... good thing it was with bulky yarn!
