Short Rows or Turns
I read up on short rows and figured out how to do it, i thought everything was going fine until i got to the left leg. I have found instructions for doing the little wrap around stitch for knit rows - no problem doing it. However, the left leg requires doing the turning on the purl row. i tried doing the wrap around stitch oposite to the way it is done for the knit row but it leaves a bump in the wool.

Does anyone know how to do a short row on the purl side? and is the wrap around stitck an absolute must when doing a short row? My book said that it has something to do with ensuring that the turn doesn't leave a whole in the pattern.
