Please help with this part of my pattern!
This section of my pattern has me stumped.

I am starting to shape the back neck/shoulders, I know how to bind off, but the wording on this has me confused.

"bind off 6 sts at beg of next 2 rows, 7 st at beg of next 2 rows. AT THE SAME TIME (caps theirs) bind off center 22 sts for neck and working both sides at once, bind off 2 sts from each neck edge once.

BO 6 sts at the beg of the RS row, knit to the center 22 sts (which you should count and mark) drop that yarn, pick up a new end and bind them off then finish the row. BO 6 sts at the beg of the WS row, work to the center, drop the yarn, pick up the other one, BO 2 sts and work to the end. Turn, BO 7 sts on the RS row, knit to the center, drop yarn, pick up other yarn, BO 2 sts, work to the end. Turn and BO 7 sts on the WS row, work to the center and that's it. Or do whatever comes next.

Because of binding off the center sts, you've got the 2 shoulders being worked with separate ends of yarn, and you have to bind off more on the neck edges as well as on the armhole edges.
