Work one row even?? Continue even?
What does it mean when the pattern says: "work one row even" and "continue even"?
This is the back top bodice of a toddler jumper. The bodice itself is done in st st.
Here is the paragraph: Neck Shaping: Knit 11 sts, bind off center 20 sts; knit across remaining 11 sts. Working on these last sts only (left back shoulder), work 1 row even. Decrease 1 st at neck edge on next row, and on following alternate row 9 sts. Continue even until total length of bodice measures 6". I'd appreciate any light you could shed my direction.

Working even means just doing the pattern w/o increases or decreases. In this case you would just work stockinette for one row. Then you do the decreases as instructed and work more stockinette till it measures 6 inches.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
