I'm pretty new to crocheting, but doing OK. I've finished a whole bunch of one-skein scarves, fat-bottom bags, and a boy beanie. I'm starting the Cupcake this weekend, and don't understand what it means when the instructions say to "work even" on certain rows. Does that mean only work even-numbered stitches? Or only work even-numbered rows in that pattern?

Hi,

It means keep the same number of stitches (i.e don't decrease or increase).  For example, if the row has 20 stitches, and the next direction says "work even for 5 rows" then those next 5 rows would have 20 stitches just like the first row.  Hope this helps!

Thanks so much! I doubt I would have ever figured that out myself.

I had the exact same problem when I was reading an American knitting pattern, I've never seen it used in any of my English patterns. It's so obvious when you realise what it means though - d'oh!

Good luck with the cupcake top, it feels good to start breaking away from scarves & bags and start making clothes Smiley

I'm planning to make one of these when I find time/yarn, let us know how it goes and post your FO when you're done!
