probably stupid question
I am doing a funnel neck sweater and the pattern states:

shape shoulders: Bind off 4 sts beg on next two rows, 5 sts beg of next two rows. Place rem 24 stst on a holder for the back neck.

Work same as back

question is , do I cut the yarn after doing the front? It doesn't say, it just says place rem 24 sts on holder and then you start the front, and it just says to work front same as back until armhole measures 3"

I think this will take you to a pic on ravelry of the sweater

It looks like it wants you to knit the front and back as two separate pieces. The remaining neck stitches are placed on a holder so they can be ready to use to knit up the neck (so you don't have to pick up and knit) but won't unravel. Yes, I would break the yarn, then start fresh for the other side.

Btw, it's not a stupid question. Knitting and crochet patterns tend to be a little mysterious in how they present the information. Most of them are made so that you don't have to read through an entire book to knit up a scarf, so certain things are left out, being assumed that people will know what to do. As you get more experience with knitting, this won't be a problem for you, really, because you'll learn how things are worked.

What I would do is leave the yarn attached and then start the front with a new ball/skein of yarn.
