I'm stuck and need help desperately!  My directions read:

working each side separately, at each neck edge, BO 2 sts once.  At the same time, at each armhole edge BO 5 stitches once then Bo 4 sts once. 

If my work is in stockinette stitch, do I knit/purl a row between each of thes directions or do I do one row with the 2 bo, then the purl row bind off 5 then the knit side bo 4? 


Hope this makes sense, and thanks!

Hi, you bind off at the beginning of a row, so BO 2 at neck, work across, turn, BO 5 at arm hole edge, work across, turn, work across (even - no BO at neck edge this time), turn, BO 4 at armhole edge, work across. Hope I got it right! BO at neck separates the knitting inot 2 pieces, so you have to join a second strand of yarn for the other side.
