I wish I'd seen this video on German short rows before I did the wrap and turn short rows. My crystal ball tells me that I'll be frogging....again....because I'm not happy with how the short rows turned out. Thanks for the link. The demonstration and explanation given in the video is OK, but somehow putting it all together was confusing. I agree that they are in reverse order.
