This is the gap between the short row section and the stitches which have been left unworked. You'll do this on both the left and right sides. On the next row, you'll decrease stitches in this area until your stitch count is back to the correct number. This will prevent holes in those areas.
I think the poster did these videos backwards. Watch part 2 first and then part 1.
THanks! I have watched these two video's, and I am going to give this a try when I get to that point again. Thank you everyone for the overwhelming help! Greatly appreciated!
