Help with pattern directions
I'm trying to a knit a coffee cozy bernat pattern.
I'm stuck! Here's the directions:
Stocking st 2 ins
(Inc 1 st in next st. K 7)4 times. 36 sts
Cont even for 4 ins. Cast off.

The cont even part...I have no idea what it means.
Thanks!

It just means to continue in the stitch established, which in this case is St st, without anymore increases or other changes. Do the St st for 4 more inches after the increase row.

The "cont even for 4 ins" means to continue knitting with out increasing or decreasing for 4 inches .After reaching the measurement shown then you would bind off and seam the ends if it was knitted flat or if knitted in the round you would be finished. It does make a difference as to which way you are knitting, flat or in the round. If knitting flat you knit one row and the next row is purled. If knitting in the round, you just knit all rows. To get garter stitch in round you knit one row and purl the next row. I hope this helps you understand it.

Thank you so much! I was assuming that was what it meant, but not for sure. Thanks again for your help.

You should always slip the sts as if to purl, but the yarn will be held in back (sl 1 wyib). So k1, leave yarn in back and slip the next st, k1, leave yarn in back, slip 1, then k3. Repeat this until you have 4 sts leaft then slip 1, k1, sl 1, k1.
