No it's totally confusing but it will make sense when it's done. What's the next bit of the pattern that might help explain a but more

You can put those extra stitches on a separate needle - those that close like a safety pin.
Knit the side that the instructions tell you. Probably bind off, then come back to the other stitches and start with a new thread and knit that side.

If you knit 15 you'll have those stitches on left kneedle. As Gatica says pop the remaining stitches on a holder. When you turn your work you then have the 15 on the left needle with the yarn at the start of the line so you shouldn't need to break it off and rejoin.

ok, so i knitted the 15, now i have my remaining stiches a small gap and the 15 all on one needle the.

The next bin in pattern is
worl=k 11 rows straight, thus ending at front edge.

Do I work the 11 rows with all my stiches now. that would make sense as it forms the front of romper and the back

If it says 'knit this side first' I'd have thought it means to work on the 15 alone. Hard to tell without seeing the pattern. Is there anything further on that refers to working the other side?
As far as I can tell you would need the remainder on a separate needle or holder.

Dots it give you a stitch count?
It sounds to me like you were knitting back and forth because the suit had an opening on the front (for buttons or zip or whatever) and then separated out the front right to create the arm hole finishing on the WS. Now you need to create the arch for the neck starting with the RS.
Just a guess but the cast off 2 at the beginning of the row is to do a reduction - is there any indication they're trying to get you to slip stitch over the cast off stitch thus reducing by 1? Otherwise I don't see what else you could be doing with those cast off stitches on the end of the next row..
Alt row, could it mean every alternative row, i.e. every second row?

I'd say when you cast off two stitches that shapes the side. The decreases should be the other end of the row to shape the neck.
Foll 1 alt rows means following 1 alternate row.
It makes a difference whether to do the cast off and decrease in the same line. When it says to cast off does it say to knit to end or anything or as Gatica said is there a stitch count?
With the neck decreases, work the decreases on two rows, then knit the next row without decreasing, then the 4th row will have the decrease again and that will give you the alternate row.

So it could look like this:
Row 1: cast off two and decrease at end of row.
Row 2: decrease at start of row
Row 3: knit
Row 4: decrease at start

Or, if you don't work the cast off and decrease in the same row it could look like this:

Row 1: cast off 2
Row 2: decrease at neck edge (start of row)
Row 3: decrease at neck edge again (end of row)
Row 4 knit
Row 5: decrease at neck edge

Does that help at all? Kinda hard to explain!
