Has any one used this pattern. I am an experienced knitter having problem understanding the last part . Insructions say put remaining stitches on spare needle. (45 in my case) then pick uip and knit 65 stitches along neck edge. Do I cut the wool and rejoin. I am totally confused and feel a bit stupid at this point.

Cut the yarn leaving about a 6" tail to weave in later. Knit the 5sts on a holder near the right front onto the smaller needle with a new end of yarn and then begin picking up sts. Continue knitting across the 45 held sts, pick up sts on the left front and finally the knit across the 5 held sts at the left front.
