short rows
I am hoping to knit a multidirectional diagonal scarf, and once I fnish each triangle, I have to knit in a directional diagonal to the what I just knitted, and I don't know how! It jus says knit the short rows but I dont' know what that means. Is there a good video clip which shows this, or can someone explain it to me? Thanks!

I think that the reason your question hasn't been answered is that we need more information. Do you have a link to the pattern?

When you do the part that's titled "Short Row Section", those rows are your short rows. The area where you ssk and turn are considered short rows. When it says to 'turn', then turn your work as if you finished that row, even though there are stitches on the needle.
