C2L stitch confusion

It says to C2L = take 1 to the front, K1, knit the 1 at front

Does this mean 1. I skip the first stitch 2. knit the second stitch normally 3. knit the 2 sts together? Or just do steps 1&2 and then knit the first one(that we skipped) and slip the 2 sts off together?

Knit into the 2nd stitch from behind stitch 1 (this is a little awkward) and drop it off the left needle. Knit into the first stitch and drop it off the left needle.
You could also do this with a cable needle or you could cable without a needle as shown here.

Thank youu!! I got it yay :slight_smile:
