short row shaping question
Okay, I'm working on this vest that requires short row shaping on the shoulders. I have looked at the video on this site and read through (although, I must confess, not WORKED through ) the short row section in Maggie Righetti's book. Here's my question...

In the video and the book, the row you work normally in order to pick up the wrapped stitches just deals with one wrapped stitch at a time. Make sense? So you are picking up one bar. In this vest pattern, however, you work back and forth a few times so that you have two wrapped stitches stacked on top of each other. Almost looks like a dropped stitch/ladder effect. So when you work the row normally to pick up the wraps, do you pick up both of them, or just the top one? Should this not be happening?

Geez, I hope this makes sense, and that someone knows what to do. Thanks for any insights,
