Instructions for working Japanese Short Rows:
Turning, knit side:
1. Knit up to the turning point
2. Turn -- you're now on the purl side -- and slip the next stitch purlwise from the left needle to the right, so that you working yarn is coming from the stitch on your right needle
3. Attach a pin to the working yarn -- the pin should go around the yarn, not through it
4. Continue, ignoring the pin, it won't be used until the gap is closed

Turning, purl side:
1. Purl up to the turning point
2. Turn -- you're now on the knit side -- and slip the next stitch purlwise, from the left needle to the right, so that you working yarn is coming from the stitch on your right needle
3. Attach a pin to the working yarn -- the pin should go around the yarn, not through it
4. Continue -- if you flip the knitting over, you'll see the pin attached to a loop

Closing the gap on the knit side:
1. Knit until you reach the gap, clearly marked by the clippie marker between two stitches
2. Grab the clippie and pull the yarn it holds onto the left needle. The loop should be correctly mounted with its right leg in front
3. Knit that loop together with the next stitch on the left needle
4. Remove the pin
