Need Help understanding instructions

Hi, I'm knitting the Gracie beret, currently stuck on #12 and #13 cos' I don't know how should i comprehend the instructions.

I assume when I do #12/2, I remove the second PM(a2, b2, c2, d2) of each pair. Then when I proceed to #13/2, after purling 19 and sliding PM, do I knit till b1/c1/d1 or to where a2/b2/c2/d2 was ?

If i knit till b1/c1/d1, wouldn't the pattern of the beret change? Looking at the picture on the site, it doesn't seem to be the case.

However I if knit till a2/b2/c2/d2 was, by the time I embark on #12/3, wouldn't it cut i reduce the 19 stitch count to 18 stitch count before reaching a PM for #13.3 ? That doesn't fit with what the instructions.

Please help, I'm trying to finish it before this Sunday XD

It appears that at this point the pattern would change, since you'd been doing yo's up to this point. Now you're working without the yo's--just knitting and decreasing. You no longer need the second marker from each set since you don't need them as a point of reference anymore.

From this point, only follow the instructions to the markers that are still on the needle, not to where anything was previously.
