Hi!!

I am working on my first sweater and I am confused by the pattern. The pattern calls for me to work 5 rows even. I am am unsure what this means. Thanks so much.

Usually means to continue the pattern you've been doing, such as stockinette.  What were you doing before you reached that part?

Thanks for responding.

This is from the Stitch'n Bitch book - Little black top.

The instructions before are to "Dec row (RS): Dec 1 st at each end of row. Rep dec row every 8th row 4 times more - 82 (90, 98, 103) st."

The next instructions are

"work 5 rows even"

it means don't do anything to it-- like don't make any decreases-- just knit for 5 rows.

It means to work five rows in the stitch pattern you're doing (probably stocking st unless you've already established a different stitch pattern) without anything extra like increases or decreases or anything.
