I ve tried to find the answer in the few books that I have but just can't find anything. The pattern I am working on says to bind off a few stitches in the middle of the work. And then rejoin yarn to remaining stitches to work. I have no idea how to join yarn to the remaining stitches. If anyone could please help I would greatly appreciate it!!! thanks. Princess of Capri

Are you working on a neckline?  That's the usual place for a bind-off with rejoin. 

Typically, you'll be told to work some stitches on one side for Shoulder A, put those on a stitch holder, then bind off a group of stitches in the center, and knit the other shoulder (Shoulder B), all using the same piece of yarn that you had been knitting with originally.  You'll need to cut off the yarn once Shoulder B is finished.

Now what your left with is a piece with one finished shoulder (B), a bound section in the middle and some stitches left on the holder (A).  All you do is to take a new piece of yarn and start knitting off that stitch holder.  You can either knit in the end as you go or weave it in later.
