I'm a beginner and I'm trying to follow a pattern for a baby bib. The pattern is:
1st row: (RS). 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook. 1 sc in each ch to end of ch. Turn. 19 sts.
2nd row: Ch 1. 2 sc in first St. 1 sc in each St to last St. 2 sc in last St. Ch 1. Trn.
3rd row: 1 sc in each St to end of row. Turn.
4th to 9th rows: Rep last 2 rows 3 times more. 27 sts.

Then it says: Cont even until work from beg measures 6 1/2 inches, ending with RS facing for next row. What does this mean? Continue from 1st row? Continue with even rows only?

Please help! Thank you!
