knitting baby cardigan and im stuck!!!!
I am knitting my first cardigan and its a baby cardigan. I have knitted up to shapeshoulders and back neck and I have no idea what to do. Here is the pattern:

shape shoulders and back neck:[/b] [I have 64 sts at the moment] (RS) cast off 6 stitches, k19, turn, leave rem sts on a holder.
Work each side of neck seperately
(WS) cast off 4sts, p to end.
(RS) cast off 6 sts, k to end
(WS) cast off 4 sts, p to end
(RS) cast off rem 5 sts
With RS facing, rejoin yarn to remaining stitches, cast off 14 sts, k to end.
(WS) cast off 6 sts.... (the rest I understand)

What I dont get is:
A) what do they mean by "turn, leave rem stitches on holder" by 'rem sts' do they mean sts I havent knit yet or the ones I have knitted?
B) it says somewhere cast off rem 5 sts then strsight after it tells me to rejoin yarn to rem sts, if I hav cast off rem sts how do I rejoin them?????
C) also if I am working each side of neck seperately how does it work when I rejoin the sts?

Please can some one make this pettern bit more idiot proof?

If u need more info plz say and I'll put up more of the pattern.

Welcome to KH!
(RS) cast off 6 stitches, k19, turn, leave rem sts on a holder.
This means to leave the sts that you haven't knit yet on a holder. They'll form the neck and second shoulder. You'll get to them later.

(RS) cast off rem 5 sts
At this point, you've finished the first shoulder and cut the yarn, leaving about a 6 inch tail to weave in later

[u]With RS facing, rejoin yarn to remaining stitches, cast off 14 sts, k to end.
OK, here is where you get to those sts that have been hanging out on the holder. You're going to put them back on a needle and with the RS facing, join a new end of yarn (leave about a 6 inch tail to weave in later), bind off the neck sts and then work on the second shoulder. Don't worry if the first stitch with the new end of yarn is a little loose. You can always go back and tighten it up later.
