What do they mean by work even?
Hello all

I am knitting this pattern:

http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring04/PATTanouk.html

At the neck shaping bit it says:

Neck Shaping
Work 13[13, 15, 15] sts in patt, place these sts on a holder, BO 9, work to end in patt. Turn and work 1 row even.
BO 3 sts at beg of next row. Work 1 row even. BO 2[2, 3, 3] sts at beg of next row. Work 1 row even. BO 2 sts at beg of next row. Work 1 row even. BO 1 st at beg of next row. Work 1 row even.
Rejoin yarn and rep neck shaping for other side, reversing shaping.

I am a bit confused by the bit about knit even/ does that mean that I don't knit in the pattern (which is a moss knit trim at the edges) and just knit it flat (i.e. all knit or all purl)? this is what i have done and it looks wrong. any help much appreciated

When a pattern says to work one row even, it must means to continue in the pattern you've been doing, without any increases or decreases.
