yarn: Moda Dea Cache
needles: size US 10.5
Cast on 80 stitches. Worked short rows until there were 26 stitches outside the markers on each end and 28 stitches in between the markers.Not a fan of the yarn - had gotten it for free a couple of years ago. Yarn looks more fluorescent in the photo than in real life

pattern: knitted ruff from Cut Out + Keep
yarn: Manos del Uruguay
needles: size US 7
Cast on 24 stitches instead of 18, but didn’t change the short rows. I also made the buttonhole larger.
The instructions on short rows are a bit confusing and not quite right. Wrapping a stitch is described as “yo, slip 1 stitch, yo, slip the slipped stitch back to the original needle”.
If you know how to work short rows, then it’s not a problem. This tutorial on knitty.com is quite helpful.
