Armhole shaping

I am making a baby jacket and this part of the directions says:

Armhole shaping: with right side facing and larger size hook, join CC with slip st in fourth Cluster; ch 5, skip next 5 Clusters, slip st in next Cluster; finish off.

Does this mean I basically sew together the fourth cluster and then join it with the tenth cluster with a slip stitch to create an armhole? If so, why am I sewing together the fourth cluster ("Join CC with slip stitch in fourth Cluster") instead of just joining it with the tenth cluster?

Thank you for your help!
