help with sweater directions
Directions read bind off center 11 (I did this) continue to work on both sides separately (does this mean one side than the other? can't do both together?)

Next Row decrease 1 st at neck edge on next 2 rows, at the same time, bind off for shoulders on every other row 6 sts once than 5 sts twice

Not sure again what at the same time means? also when binding off shoulders do you start row binding off or bind off at the end of the row? Thanks a lot!

You work on both shoulders with separate strands of yarn. You can work across one to the bound off sts, drop that yarn and pick up the other strand and work the other shoulder. It's the same row, just split.

At the same time means you're going to shape both the armhole edge and the neck edge differently, but over the same rows. For the shoulders, you can only bind off at the beg of a row. If you BO at the end of the row you end up with the yarn at the edge and a gap over the bound off sts so you couldn't knit them with the same yarn.
