Yes you can use any method of short rows which works for you. The instructions for rows 7 and 8 are for picking up the wrap for the W&T short row which you're not doing. So ignore what it says and just do whatever you normally do when you come to the turn with german short rows. Then you work 1 more stitch and turn again.
