Sweater pattern short rows

I am working on a sweater which calls for short rows. I have not had this problem with the many socks I’ve knitted…but I am getting noticeable holes every time I turn the yarn to either knit or purl back. Any advice on how to overcome this problem?

There’s a technique for sweaters called `wrap and turn’ where you wrap your yarn around the slipped stitch and when you come back to that stitch you pick up the wrap and knit it with the stitch. This article explains it well -

Suzeeq: Thank you SO much for this information. I had just ripped out my sweater for the 4th time because I was so upset at the “holey” appearance. The article you suggested (with pictures, thank goodness) totally solved my problem. I have seldom met so many generous people as fellow knitters who leap to another knitter’s aid!!

Thanks again,

Jeri

I have it in my bookmarks because whenever I want to do short rows I forget whether you slip the stitch before or after the wrap. So I have to look it up every time.
