What does this mean?

I’m knitting cute "Mary Jane’s and I have a problem with one of the rows. Can you please tell me what it means?

Next row: K9, bind off 8 sts., k3 for the tongue, bind off 8 stitches, k9.
I understand all of that but I need clarification on the following…

Work 1 row over these last 9 stitches. Bind off.

I understand its the last 9 sts that I last knit. But do I bind them off at the SAME time that I am working that one row??? :shrug: Thats my question.

Thanks so much :muah:

I’d work one more row and then bind off.

Thank you Ingrid. I appreciate you!! :hug:
