Shaping Armholes
Ok. My question relates to my bind off stitches. I've included my pattern up to that point for reference. The pattern is as follows:

Establish Yoke Pattern: Row 1 (RS): (K1TBL, p1TBL) 12(13-14-14) times, k7 (7-9-10), *k1TBL, p1TBL, k1TBL, k7(7-6-7), rep from * twice more, k0(0-3-3), (k1TBL, p1TBL) 12(13-14-14) times.

Row 2: (P1, k1) 12(13-14-14) times, p7(7-9-10), *p1, k1, p1,p7(7-6-7), rep from * twice more, p0(0-3-3), (p1, k1) 12(13-14-14) times. Rep these 2 rows until piece measures 12" from beg, end on WS.

Shape Armholes: Bind off 13(15-17-17) at beg of the next 2 rows - 59(59-61-65) sts. Work even in pat as established untl piece measures 13 1/2" from beg, end on WS.

Should I be using the exact stitches as they are called for in Row 1 and 2 when binding off the first 15 stitches or just stitching a simple knit or purl stitch? Also, what does it mean when the pattern says to "work even in pattern as established"?

Thanks.

It does look as though you're supposed to do a twisted rib pattern as on the first row. Then row 2 is the ribbing without twisting. That's the pattern you're establishing to work even in, without any increasing or decreasing. For binding off, it may not matter if you do the twisted stiches.

So working "even" means working the same pattern as previously described without any more increases or decreases? I'm assuming I adjust the pattern at the edges for the stitches I bound off? Sorry if these questions seem elementary, but I'm new at this.

Yes, work even means keeping the same number of stitches at that point - no incs or decs. After you BO the stitches, work the remaining sts in the same pattern. It should be easy enough, by that point you'll be able to see which ones will be ribbed and which stockinette.
