I'm knitting a bear on circular needles, working on his head. I just finished the increasing and came to the instruction to "knit 3 rounds even." I have no idea what that means. [The whole instruction says "Round 4 (increase): *K1, m1, k10, m1, k1, repeat from * around. (88 stitches) continue increase as established increasing every 2nd round by knitting 2 more stitches between each m1 until there are 96 stitches on the needle. Knit 3 rounds even." Odd rows are just knit.] Next it tells me to Round 18 (decrease): *K1, ssk, k18, k2tog, k1, repeat from * around (88 stitches). Fine, I can handle that. But a little while later I have to knit 1 row even. Huh? (I do think the use of row and round is a typo and they mean the same thing...) Thanks for the input, I'm sort of stalled until I figure this part out!

If they said it that way you might think you should repeat the previous rows.
