OK, you've stumped me on that one! It sounds like an error to me- you *should* be able to get the number of stitches called for (74) in the number of rows given (3 remaining chart rows + 5 'even' rows) but I can't make it work out.
"work 5 rows even" means just knit in St st rather than following the chart or pattern. I can't make the math work, though, so... I guess I would go ahead and work 7 rows even instead of 5 so you get your stitch count right. You're eventually going to join it with the other stitches back into a round again, and I think it will work out...
