SOCK HELP
Hello. I have a pattern for socks I want to try, and in certain parts of the pattern it's telling me to work 1 rnd even and in another part it's telling me to knit 2 rnds even. What does this mean??

here is the pattern:
NSTRUCTIONS
The instructions are written for smallest size. If changes are necessary for larger sizes the instructions will be written thus ( ).
Cast on 84 sts loosely. Divide into 24, 36 and 24 sts on 1st, 2nd and 3rd needles. Join in rnd, placing a marker on first st.Work in (K2. P2) ribbing for 1 ins [4 cm].
Proceed in Cable Pat as follows:
1st and 2nd rnds: *P1. (K1. P1) twice. P2. K4. P1. Rep from * around.
3rd and 4th rnds: *P1. (P1. K1) twice. P2. K4. P1. Rep from * around.
5th rnd: *P1. (K1. P1) twice. P2. C4B. P1. Rep from * around.
6th rnd: As 1st rnd.
7th and 8th rnds: As 3rd and 4th rnds.
9th and 10th rnds: *P1. K4. P2. (K1. P1) twice. P1. Rep from * around.
11th and 12th rnds: *P1. K4. P2. (P1. K1) twice. P1. Rep from * around.
13th rnd: *P1. C4B. P2. (K1. P1) twice. P1. Rep from * around.
14th rnd: As 9th rnd.
15th and 16th rnds: As 11th and 12th rnds.
These 16 rnds form Cable Pat.

Cont in Cable Pat until work from beg measures approx 6 ins [16.5 cm], ending on a 16th rnd of Cable Pat.
Next rnd: 1st needle: (K6. P2tog) 3 times. 2nd needle: Pat to end of needle. 3rd needle: (K6. P2tog) 3 times. 78 sts in rnd divided as 21, 36 and 21 sts on 1st, 2nd and 3rd needles. Break yarn.
Arrange heel sts: Slip last 4 sts from 1st needle onto beg of 2nd needle. Slip first 4 sts from 3rd needle onto end of 2nd needle. Divide 44 sts from 2nd needle onto 2 needles and leave for instep. Slip sts from 3rd needle onto 1st needle for heel.
Make heel: Next row: (RS). *K1. Sl1. Rep from * to last 2 sts. K2.
Next row: K1. Purl to last st. K1.
Rep these 2 rows for 2 ins [6 cm], ending with RS facing for next row.
Shape Heel: Next row: K21. Sl1. K1. psso. Turn.
Next row: P9. P2tog. Turn.
Next row: K9. Sl1. K1. psso. Turn.
Next row: P9. P2tog. Turn.
Rep last 2 rows until all sts are worked, thus ending with RS facing for next row. 10 sts.
Shape instep: With RS of work facing and 1st needle, knit and pick up and knit 16 sts along left side of heel.With 2nd needle, pat across 44 sts for instep. With 3rd needle, pick up and knit 16 sts from right side of heel, then knit first 5 heel sts. 86 sts in rnd divided as 21, 44, and 21 sts on 1st, 2nd and 3rd needles.
1st rnd: 1st needle: Knit to last 3 sts. K2tog. K1. 2nd needle: Pat to end of needle. 3rd needle: K1. Sl1. K1. psso. Knit to end of needle.
Work 1 rnd even.
Rep last 2 rnds to 78 sts divided as 17, 44 and 17 sts on 1st, 2nd and 3rd needles.
Keeping instep sts in cable pat, cont even until foot from picked up sts at heel measures 6 (7-8) ins [17 (19-22) cm].
Next rnd: 1st needle: Knit. 2nd needle: (K5. K2tog) 6 times. K2. 3rd needle: Knit. 72 sts.

Knitting a round even means to knit the round without any increases or decreases.
Best not to give the entire pattern due to copyright issues, just a few lines are usually enough.
