Need help with pattern!

Hello! My name is Emma – I’m currently working on the “3x chic” sweater from
My question is about the directions for binding off at the shoulder (the right shoulder). I have 17 stitches on the needle. The directions say
"Bind off 6 sts at armhole edge twice.
Bind off 5 stis at armhole edge once."

What is the difference between this and just binding off all my 17 stitches? Am I supposed to bind off 6, finish knitting the row, the bind off when coming back in the other direction?

Thanks so much in advance! :slight_smile: And i really enjoy reading all your posts!
