Short rows questions
I'm working in double seed stitch http://www.knittingonthenet.com/stitches/double.htm and need to do short row shaping. I have figured out that working my short rows in a multiple of 4 rows disrupts the pattern the least, and I think I want to start them on the RS. I know from experience that one turns out better than the other, depending on whether it is started on the RS or WS. Do you think it would be better to turn on the first k or p or the second as I come to them getting ready to turn? I think I can work one side of my sweater with the shortest turning row first and then work across it to the next, and so on? I will be doing a total of 8 short rows. I know what I'm thinking and hope I've expressed it so that someone else will too.

Is this pattern also known as moss stitch?
