On the next round, it says:

Round 2 and all even rounds: Work even in pattern.

What exactly does that mean? Once again, I am confused.

Yes, in knitting patterns 'work (or knit) even(ly)' means to carry on knitting the pattern you've been knitting with no increases, decreases, cast ons or bind offs. So it is possible to have an instruction that reads 'work even for the next 3 rows' although 3 is an odd number. In this case you'll be doing as clairweber said.
