What does "join yarn" mean?  It's for picking up and working on stitches that are on a stitch holder, some are attached to the work and some stitches were made on the holder....does this sound right?

can you give us a little more context?  Usually join yarn just means to start knitting with a new piece of yarn like you do when you are shaping a collar line you tend to knit x number of stitches, join new yarn, bind off stitches in the middle, then knit to the end.  This provides you with a ball of yarn to work each side of the collar.

However in your instance I'm not really sure.  Is it an online pattern?  Let us know more about it and we can probably help.

i usually see this on something like a neck. you knit so many stitches for the shoulder, bind off for the neck, join yarn to knit the remaining shoulder stitches.

Yes, it is for a neckline!  For the mini sweaters in Weekend Knitting.

Pattern says:
Work 5 sts, sl next 5 sts to holder, using the backward loop method CO 5 sts for back of neck..

And later, going back to neckband:
Join yarn at side of neck opening, ready to work the sts on the front holder


So does that mean simply to start knitting with a new strand of yarn?  How will the 5 newly CO stitches be attached to the sweater?

it sounds like the co stitches are already attached to the sweater as they are cast on with the original yarn.
