Knit Even?!?
Hi there,

I came across a knitting pattern stated "Knit even for 45 rows" or "Work 2 row even". What does this actually means?
Many thanks in advance.

Back
Continuing in color B, work back and forth in stockinette st and
start armhole shaping:
BO 4 (6, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 14, 14) sts, at beginning of next 2 rows.
100 (103, 115, 125, 133, 142, 150, 164, 183) sts
BO 3 sts at beginning of next 2 (2, 2, 4, 4, 4, 6, 6, 6) rows. 94 (97,
109, 113, 121, 130, 132, 146, 165) sts

Knit even for 45 (49, 47, 49, 49, 49, 49, 37, 33) rows ending with
a WS row.


Shoulder Shaping
Short Row 1 (RS): K to last 5 sts, W&T
Short Row 2 (WS): P to last 5 sts, W&T
Short Row 3: K to last 10 sts, W&T
Short Row 4: P to last 10 sts, W&T
Short Row 5: K to last 15 sts, W&T
Short Row 6: P to last 15 sts, W&T

Work 2 rows even, picking up wraps and working them together
with the st they wrap.

Work even means to maintain the number of stitches on the needles, don't increase or decrease. Just work across the row as directed.
