Reading pattern

I am attempting to knit my first article of clothing–a tank top. I have just finished the section titled “Shaping the armholes”. The pattern then tells me how many stitches should be on my ndls and says “work even” until the armhole reaches 6 1/2 inches. I don’t know what “work even” means. Does it mean continue the regular pattern stitch or keep decreasing for the armhole?

It means keep working the same number of stitches.

Thank you!
