Link to the pattern: http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/us/pattern.php?id=238&lang=us

I've been knitting off and on for about 6 years now, and I feel like I'm pretty experienced and usually have very little trouble following a pattern, but this has got me completely lost.

In particular,

Seen from RS the right side of piece is towards front and left side is toward back.
Now bind off at the front of piece and cast on new sts at the back of piece.
At front: bind off 2-2-3-3-3 sts, and then bind off every other row: 1 st 9-10-11-12-12 times, 2 sts 3-3-3-3-4 times, 3 sts 3 times and 4 sts 1 time.
At back: inc every other row: 3 sts 1 time and 1 st 2 times, then every 4th row: 1 st 4 times.
After all shaping is complete = 39-40-42-43-45 sts.

I've never seen the phrase bind off at the front and cast on at the back before. Could someone please translate this for me??

Looking at the schematic helps. You've knit a sleeve and you'll be binding off on the front neck edge (the right edge of the sleeve) at the beginning of the RS row, and casting on at the other edge (on the left of the sleeve) at the end of the row, and these sts will make the back.
