Is this one of those cases where I just need to "trust the pattern" and have a go at it?
Pretty much. :teehee: Short rows are just that... short rows. You turn in the middle of your work to create more rows. In the video section under Advanced Techniques there is a video for short row with wrap. That is just one technique for many different ways to do it though. Start by trying what the pattern suggests and see how it goes.
Also...I'm pretty sure we've had some posted here. You might try a search.
