a beautiful beret - shall have to study the charts and see how to make it work as I really want to knit it

I have finished chart 1 and want to go on to chart II. I can't get the chart to line u with the directions. Can someone please help me out here? thanks

The charts do not line up--at least I couldn't figure it out. The instructions didn't make much sense either, it actually looked like the main part of the hat pattern was complete, so I just finished the hat using the main color. This was the decrease pattern I used. K18 K2tog, SSK, K30 K12 K17 K2tog, SSK, K28 K11 I continued this until the last few rows when I added some extra decreases to finish it up a little quicker as it was getting a little long for me.

My decrease pattern didn't format correctly. 1st decrease row K18, K2tog, SSK, K30, K2tog, SSK, K30, K2tog, SSK, K30, K2tog, SSK, K12. 2nd decrease row K17, K2tog, SSK, K28, K2tog, SSK, K28, K2tog, SSK, K28,K2tog, SSK, K11.

i love this shape is there a plain version please 8
