It has been my experience that knitters are more frequent users of the phrase "work even in patt." If I see it in a crochet pattern I would understand it to mean just what Ingrid noted. I'd also suspect the crochet pattern was designed by a knitter. :oo: Not that it is a bad thing, but I am aware that knitting patterns and crochet patterns are written in different styles.
It can lead to confusion for a crocheter who doesn't knit to read a pattern written by a knitter who is venturing into crochet.
I see you started a new thread with this same or similar post. I've posted a reply to your question (as have others) on your thread.
