Help reading this Harry Potter Pattern
Hey all! Semi new knitter here. I am just graduating up from scarves and need a little help lol

So I am going to make this pink beret and just need some clarification on the pattern

http://dontcallmedora7.livejournal.com/3480.html

K1, INC, around until last 2, K2 (122 sts)

So the increase in this round I can do anyway I want since it does not specify correct? Is there one that is more better to use?

S1, K2tog, psso, K1, P2, K2, P2, K2, rep from * around to last repeat of this pattern. Instead of slipping a st and K2tog, knit/purl to the end (should be 2 extra sts)

on the last repeat I am just alternating between Knit and Purl to the end??

row 2 and every alternating round to end)-K/P in pattern

and this row and every other I am doing 1 by 1 ribbing????

Sorry, I just want to make sure I am going to do this right and understand it correctly before I attempt it lol

You can't always use just any increase, doing a different one from what the pattern intended can come out to the wrong number of sts. For this one it looks like it should be a kfb, so you k1, kfb all the way around. If you'd rather use a m1 then you k2, m1, all the way around.

The pattern round - S1, K2tog, psso, K1, P2, K2, P2, K2, rep from * around to last repeat of this pattern. Instead of slipping a st and K2tog, knit/purl to the end (should be 2 extra sts) - isn't sort of ribbing; it will kind of look like a k2, p2 rib. On the following round this - K/P in pattern - means to knit the knit sts and purl the purl sts which will be k2, p2, not 1x1.

How do you know which increase to use if it the pattern doesn't say?

You can tell which inc to use by the number of sts you start and end with. This starts with 82, subtract that from 122 which means you inc 40 sts. Since you're supposed to k1, inc all the way around, if you do k1 kfb it works, if you do k1, m1 you'd be doubling the sts and get about 160. You could do k2, m1 and that would come out.
