Okay, my head's a bit fuzzy today (who are we kidding...it's been weeks...years... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">), but here goes. You knit to the point you want to begin your short row, wrap your yarn around the next stitch (which you don't 'work') semi-loosely, turn, purl back to the point you want to end your short row wrap the next unworked stitch, turn & knit back to the 1st wrap. Before you slide your needle into the stitch, slide it into/under the bar across the wrapped stitch and pick it AND the (aforementioned) wrapped/unworked before stitch and knit them. That makes the bar go to the inside so it isn't noticeable & (IIRC) makes any hole less apparant. I believe that wrapping the stitch loosely in the first place is also important.<br><br>
Check out knittinghelp.com they might have a video of it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Or, if you're doing all of that already and it still isn't working, google "yarn over short rows" FAR easier, IMO.
