Hello, I'm a novice at knitting and this is my first hat and cable project. I have completed patterns 1-12 but I can understand to proceed
work rows 1-12 of the cable pattern one time

Next round:*K2,m1 repeat from * to the end of round

Work rows 2-12 of the cable pattern one time, then work rows 1-6 one time.

I tried to send you the pattern but I can't paste the link. It's on ravelry Star_Crossed_Slouchy_Beret

Please Help,
Alexza

I think you need a few posts before you can link. Please don't post the entire pattern. What you did is fine. Here's the link if someone needs it.

Now which part exactly are you having trouble with? Are you having trouble with the cable pattern? There are videos at the top of the page under advanced techniques.

If its the next line with he M1.. An M1 is an increase which will give your beret it's shape. There are several M1 increases. M1A, M1T, M1R or M1L should all work fine. Just be consistent and use the same one.

If you need more help just ask in this thread. :)

I need help understanding the pattern. When it states " work rows 1-12 of the cable pattern one time" does that mean to repeat pattern 1-12 once again? I'm still learning how to read pattern and I get confused. I really do appreciate your help. :)

Okay, I think this section explains it -

"work rows 1-12 of the cable pattern one time
Next round:*K2,m1 repeat from * to the end of round
Work rows 2-12 of the cable pattern one time, then work rows 1-6 one time."

Do the 12 rows of the cable pattern once. Then do the increase row instead of row row 1, and after that, rows 2-12 of the cable pattern once, then only rows 1-6 once. that's 30 rows total.

Thank You so much! I really appreciate you and I will post the project up when I'm done!
