Need help with shoulder shaping
I am knitting my first sweater and I am confused about the shoulder shaping in the pattern.

I have twenty stitches on my needle, ten on each side of the neck edge. The pattern says Bind off at each shoulder edge 5 sts twice. I BO the first 5 stitches and now I don't know what to do next. Will I be BO all the remaining stitches or will I still have 10 left on the needle? I'm so confused, please help!

Here is a link to the pattern if that would help,

Bind off the first 5 and then finish the row. Work the 5 stitches back and then bind them off. It's just a way to give a little shaping to the shoulder.
