Short rows
Hi, Am I making too much of this? Will it make sense as I'm doing it?? Hope someone can help me understand these instructions:

Short Rows
You will now work short rows across the middle of
the back in order to raise it and allow for a better
fit on the shoulders and neck.
Row 1 (RS): K 75, w&t.
Row 2 (WS): P 41 sts, w&t.
Row 3: Work to 5 sts before last
wrap, w&t.
Rows 4-10: Repeat row 3, knitting on the RS and purling on the WS, 7 times more.
Row 11: After last w&t, k to end of row, picking up wraps with associated sts.
Row 12: P all sts, picking up remaining wraps with associated sts.

W&T Work until the stitch to be wrapped. If knitting: bring yarn to the front of the
work, slip next st as if to purl, return the yarn to the back; turn work and slip
wrapped st onto right hand needle. Continue across row. If purling: bring yarn
to the back of the work, slip next st as if to purl, return the yarn to the front;
turn work and slip wrapped st onto RH needle. Continue across row.
