Kntting at the same time

Hi there-
I am a somewhat new knitter and trying to tackle a project other than a scarf. I chose a shawl/poncho type deal. I grasp every part of the pattern until it says to knit both sides at the same time. That has me confused, I just don’t quite get what that means or how it’s done.
Thanks so much. Jenn

:thinking: Are there any other instructions with that line? Can you type it here? LIke… what comes before and after those instructions? That might help me.

It probably comes when you shape the shoulders/head opening. You’ll divide your yarn between the two sides and work each shoulder separately, but at the same time rather than one at a time. No biggy.
