I’m getting ready to start the urban rustic gloves from Knitty (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTurbanrustic.html) and I need a little help understanding their short row instructions, since I’ve never done short rows before. I looked on the video here, but it seems a little different from the pattern. The directions say:
"When short rows are turned in this pattern, the directions will read as follows:
K(number of sts), turn.
Knit to turning point, turn work to begin working back in the other direction, bring yarn over right needle to back of work, forming a yo (yarn over); you are ready to knit the next row.
When you reach this turning point while working a subsequent row, work as follows:
Knit to the yo, then knit the yo together with the following stitch. This will close the hole that would otherwise be formed by turning the short row."
I guess I have a few questions…for one thing, since you’re knitting the whole thing in garter stitch, how would you get a yo by bringing the yarn to the back? Wouldn’t you get it by bringing it to the front? And then I don’t totally understand how to knit the yo later. Any help?
