"Work even in pat as established until piece measures 2 1/2 from beg, end on RS." Does this mean that I repeat those 2 beginning rows or should I do the 2 rows while also doing the 4 rows of the "Pattern Stitch"?
No, it means you work those two rows once, in the beginning, and than work the pattern stitch - the 4 rows of it - until your item measures... something, 2.5", whatever that is.
