Work 3 rows even?

For the Bernat “Easy Snowboarder Hat” (to knit). Of four levels of easy to harder, this pattern is a two for medium. But this term “work 3 rows even” is baffling me.

In the pattern for the hat once the earflaps are made and connected and height is knitted the decreasing begins… The recipe/pattern reads:
Shape top: Next rows: K1.*K2tog. K10. Rep from * to end of row.
“Work 3 rows even”

Does this mean, work the next two rows the same as the one just written?

It just means to knit three rows without any changes in the stitch count (no inc or dec) and doing the same stitch you have been doing (knit in this case).
