binding off question
Okay, one more silly question. When bidding off, when I get to the "knit to 5 stitches before the next hip marker and bind 5 off" do I use the 6th stitch before the marker that I've already knitted to start binding off, or knit the first of the five, then the second, then slip the first over the second? Thanks so much for you help.
