Also-- if you've never done short rows before-- this pattern has them. They are very easy; what you're doing is just before you get to the very end of the row (by whatever they tell you-- I think the first time it's 3 sts), you turn AS IF YOU HAD FINISHED THE ROW and start the next row.

I'm sure he'll love it!
So that's what short rows are

Knitting is saving my sanity

OTN: Hats, hats and soon, socks!
