I'm a bit stuck with my pattern. It says "p2 *sl2 wyinb, p2; rep form* to last 13 sts. sl2 wyib, turn". It must sound stupid but I can't understand what I have to do with those las 13 sts, could somebody help me please? Thanks!

What are you making? It looks like you're doing short rows, you won't work all the stitches before turning if that's the case. A link to you pattern or it's name and where you got it would be helpful.

Thanks for answering! Yes I'm doing short rows, I don't have the link to the pattern because it's in a book but it's a slip stitch beret
and it's looks like this http://www.ysolda.com/published-patterns/slip-stitch-beret

That's pretty. The short rows will add the shaping of the hat so that part of your knitting will have more rows than other parts. Just leave the 13 sts on the needle and do as the pattern says. When you're done working short rows you'll pick them all up again. I know you're not making socks, but Amy's video here (http://www.knittinghelp.com/video/play/working-the-heel-of-a-sock) shows short rows.
