Short Rows: Problem on the purl side
I had to make short rows on my last pattern and everything went fine except the concealing on the purl side.

I'm not sure what I did wrong, but I ended up with small holes between my stitches. The short rows were made with circular needles.

What am I doing wrong?

Here's a great video on w&t that shows a different way to knit them so they're nearly invisible on both sides. There's 2 parts - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_yVikAvPuE4

This is the same video I watched to learn how to make short rows and conceal them. However, I still have little holes =(

My guess is, since I'm using circular needles, when I'm concealing the wraps, I'm always doing knit sts, and no purl sts, is the reason why I'm getting those holes.

Should I conceal them the way she is in the first part of the videos for all of them or still do the concealing like the first video when I come across wraps that were done on the knit side and do the concealing like the 2nd videon when I come across wraps that were done on the purl side?

Are you wrapping your stitches? I use a method where you don't wrap and they turn out much better I am just curious as to what method you happen to use...

If you look the video in the link suzeeq gave, this is exactly what I did. I wrap and turn. The concealing works well on the knit side, but it makes holes on the purl side.

Okay, here's a site that gives another method for doing short rows without wraps - Japanese Short Rows I think she has another couple methods there on her blog, too.
