Short rows for bust shaping usually are best placed about 1-2" below the armhole. So what I'd do, is start in on knitting those 39 rounds that the pattern talks about, keeping track of # of rounds as you go, then when you get to about 1-2" below armhole (maybe take a look at yourself in the mirror with a bra on and decide exactly how much lower than your armhole the fullest part of your bust is. Measure and it will give you a better idea), start placing the short rows. The short rows will not count in your 39 rounds, so once you finish the short rows start working in rounds again, counting from wherever you left off in your 39 round total count.

Does that make sense??

I hope it works out! Can't wait to see the finished product. What yarn and colour are you using?? ALL of the Picovoli's I've seen finished have been beautiful.

I am using Debbie Bliss Cathay in navy blue. This is my first garment and I am very excited about it.
