Having trouble with short rows.
Ok, here is my issue. I am working a shawl collar of my sweater and have finished all the W&T for my short rows and now I am knitting back across so that I can hide all of my wraps. The problem that I am having is that I can't identify which stitches are my wraps. This is compounded by the fact that I am double stranding my knitting so every stitch looks like it has an extra piece of yarn because, well, it does. I have watched Amy's video probably 100 times trying to see how she identifies the wrapped stitches and I just can't get it.

Does anyone have any tips on identifying the wrapped stitches, I've gotten so far on this sweater and it looks awesome. I really don't want to just knit back across and not hide them and have this one thing be something that I hate in this sweater just because I can't figure out how to know what stitches need hidden. Oh, and to compound issues, the wraps are done every 3 stitches on a 2x2 rib.

Pictures would be fantastic, or at least really detailed description of what I should be looking for.

The wraps go around the slipped sts and will be sideways to the stitch. Since you know they're every 3 sts you should be able to find them, they'll look a bit different than the others. Maybe the pictures in this article will help you some.

Ok. So it should look look like a purl bump around a knit stitch?

And also, there is a gap between every three stitches on my needles. I can tell that this gap must be where the W&Ts are, but which side of the gap has the wrapped stitch?

Yes the gaps are from the W&T; if you start from the edge, the first gap has the wrap around that stitch.
