Short rows in moss stitch

I have done a lot of knitting and for the first time ever I am completely stumped.
I am knitting a toddler’s jacket which has a moss stitch shawl collar and despite watching several videos on how to wrap and turn to avoid holes I just cannot do it.
I am wondering if the problem is because I am knitting moss stitch, rather than stocking stitch.
Any advice would be much appreciated.

Welcome to the forum!
Have you tried working the short rows without a wrap & turn? I’ve just tried a swatch and the appearance of holes is minimized because of the moss stitch pattern. What seemed to be more of a problem is keeping to the moss stitch after the turn.
Of course, there are other methods for working short rows (shadow wraps, yarn overs and German short rows among them).
What is the name of your pattern?

Thank you for your reply. I bought the pattern online and unfortunately it has no makers name and I can’t find from whom I bought it. It’s just called tClassic Boys cardigan. I will try the short rows without a wrap, as I did previously but I definitely had obvious holes before.

So the problem is with the wrap itself? If so, have you tried another technique like German short rows? They are more straightforward to work and they do prevent holes.

Maybe this pattern?

Yes, that’s the one.
