How, how how?
For the following two, is cast off the same as bind off and why do I need another ball of yarn for cast off, and how do I do armholes and the neck at the same time?


4. Armhole shaping. Cast off 5 sts at beginning of next 2 rows. Dec 1 st at each end of every alternate row 11 times. Continue until armhole measures 4.0 ins (24 rows), with 74 sts remaining.


[img]2. Divide for neck. Work both sides at the same time. Work 42 sts. With a second ball of yarn, cast off next 6 sts and work remaining 42 sts. Continue armhole shaping until 24 rows worked from beginning of armhole. AT THE SAME TIME,
3. Shape neck. Dec 1 st at neck edge of next row, then every 2nd row 5 times, then every 3rd row 12 times, until 16 sts remain.

OK. Cast off is the same as bind-off, yes.

RE: the 2nd ball of yarn, it's having you do that so you can do both sides of the neck at once. Is this a V-neck? Sounds like it wants you to divide so you can make both sides of a V. You're using your original ball of yarn for the side where your working yarn is when you divide, and a separate ball for the other side. This allows you to knit both sides at the same time, on the same needle.

As for armholes and neck at the same time, you'll start a RS row with an armhole edge. You'll do your armhole shaping here, then work across the row to the middle, where you divided for your neck. You'll do your neck decreases here, on each side of the divide. You'll continue to work across the row over to the other armhole, where you'll do your armhole shaping again.

Make sense?
