Oh please help!
Hi all!!
I seem to remember knitting being so much easier, but I was about 11 last time I touched a pair of knitting needles. Almost 40 years later I'm trying to read a pattern and now I know why I stuck with scarves back then.

So the pattern says:
Shape the neck and shoulders
Bind off 4 sts at beg of next 2 rows, 3
sts at beg of next 4 rows, AT SAME
TIME, place center 27 sts on
holder for neck and working both sides at once, bind
off from neck edge 2 sts once and dec 1 st every
other row once.

Does this mean bind off 4 stitches and knit until I reach the center 27 and then put them on a holder and then finish the last part of the row? Or do I wait until the first two rows are done and when I start binding off the 3 stitches THEN take out the middle 27? Does work both sides at once mean armhole side AND neck side?
e.g. Starting with 53 stitches. Bind off 4 stitches. Knit 7 stitches. Bind off 2 from neck. Place 27 stitches on holder. Bind off 2 from neck. Knit 11 stitches. Is that right?

I am VERY confused!
Huge thanks for any help.
