I'm knitting longies using the <a href="http://www.littlebellesoakers.com/doodlepantspattern.html" target="_blank">Aubrey Doodlepants</a> pattern and I'm having a real problem with the short rows. I'm using the <a href="http://nonaknits.typepad.com/nonaknits/2005/04/japanese_short_.html" target="_blank">Nona Knits</a> Japanese short row technique and when I get to closing the second gap caused by the shortrowing, I'm getting a HUGE hole. I've tried everything I can think of to solve this and I'm coming up empty. Does anyone have any tips on solving this problem or a better method of short rowing? I've tried the wrapping technique that the doodlepants pattern suggests and using that one I end up with two holds, instead of one like the Japanese shortrowing. So I guess I'm making progress <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Are you knitting the wraps in with the stitch when you knit the wrapped stitches? I didn't have any gaps in some hoods that knitted and shaped using short row shaping.<br><br>
I read the Nonaknits description of the Japanese technique and thought it looked a lot more fussy than simple wrapping and knitting the wraps.
