The L and R front are as you're wearing the sweater. So with the RS facing you start at the L shoulder, pick up down that neck edge, knit the sts on the front neck holder, pick up sts up the other neck edge, then knit the back neck sts from their holder. You can do this on straight needles, though the sts may pull a little going around the curves the first row or two.
