Stuck on knitting Pattern


I was wondering if some one could help me please.
I’m doing a baby’s cardigan and have come to the shaping for the back.
I really don’t get what she is saying to do.

Shape shoulders and back neck
Next row (RS): Cast off 3 [5: 6: 7] sts, K until there are
5 [6: 7: 8] sts on right needle and turn, leaving rem sts on a
Work each side of neck separately.
Dec 1 st at beg of next row.
Cast off rem 4 [5: 6: 7] sts.
With RS facing, rejoin yarn to rem sts, cast off centre 21 [21:
23: 25] sts, K to end.
Complete to match first side, reversing shaping’s.

Shape shoulders back and neck-
For whichever size you are making, you need to bind off one of the numbers either outside or inside the bracket that goes with the cardigan size. You will then knit all stitches from your left needle until X amount is on your right needle, turn so that your right needle is now in your left hand, put the remaining stitches on a holder or scrap yarn to be worked later.
Work each side of back separately
Decrease 1 stitch at the beginning of your next row.
Bind off X amount of stitches according to the size being made.
With Right Side facing, tie new yarn to remaining stitches, bind off x amount of stitches, knit to end of row.
Knit other side to match with shaping reversed.

I hope that helps? It may help to link up the pattern to see how it is written entirely?

Thank you so much for your help, I will give it a go see what happens.
I’m not quite sure how to link up the pattern ,I will do some more reading.
Once again thank you :slight_smile:

Good luck, I hope it turns out how you want. FOr future reference, if the pattern is online, all you have to do is copy and paste the url to this part where you write and it will allow others to see the pattern as well. You’re welcome.
