I really want to make this waistcoat: http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=118&d_id=13&lang=us   

but I'm having trouble following the pattern.  I can follow the charts easily, but the written part is really confusing me.

This is the part I am stuck on:

Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front. Cast on 153-169-185-217-233-249 sts (includes 5 front band sts each side towards mid front) on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Muskat. Continue as follows from RS: 5 front band sts in GARTER ST see above, M.1 9-10-11-13-14-15 times across the row in the last repeat do not work the last st (in order to make pattern identical on both front pieces) and 5 front band sts in garter st. Work 1 vertical repeat of M.1 like this. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 3 cm / 1" make BUTTONHOLE see above!

When they say 'work 1 vertical repeat of M.1"  do they want me to repeat M.1 once more in the same row, work the next row the same as this row, work the entire chart once, or something else?

M.1 refers to the chart, so one vertical repeat would be to work all the rows in it once. Every inch you put in a buttonhole.
