Bind off issue

Hi! I have reached one of the last steps on my shawl pattern were it says to end on the RS row with 5 stitches left. I’ve done this. Now it wants me to “bind off 1st st, drop the remaining 4 sts from needles and Alli to unravel all the way to the beginning.”

Where my issue is is the count of stitches in dropping. If I am left with 5 sts and bind off the first sts, doesn’t that mean that I knit he first two and slip the first st on the right needle over, leaving only 3 left on my left needle? Do I have to slip the 2nd st that was part of the first bind off that is on my right needle, back to the left? Help please ! :slight_smile:
