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. http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/increases

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
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.
