Silly hat finishing question

The last instructions on my pattern read:

Row 12: *K2 tog, K1, K 2 tog, K1. (4 sts)
Rows 13 – 16: Knit

Run yarn through remaining 4 stitches and tie off inside topknot.

So what exactly does this last line mean?? I have finished Row 16 and I’m guessing I cut the yarn leaving a little extra, then just stick it thru the 4 loops that show when I remove the needles. Or do I use a new piece of yarn to stick thru the loops?? I am so close to finishing this cute little project!!!

you would cut your yarn off leaving enough to run through the last 4. that help? :thumbsup:
