Es muy complicado entender los vídeos para quienes tejemos con el método inglés.. :(

Confused and messed up...I have holes! After knitting the 6 stitch short rows across the entire row, (Section 1) Work 1 row over all sts from WS and inc as before.) Do you then knit a row, in the same color, across the row? As this is the point where I get holes. I then go on to Section 2 and knit the first six stitchs (with a YO at the begininning), turn it and knit back to the beginning where I knit 1, YO, then knit 12 stitches.How can I avoid the holes?

No audio. Why would you not include it?

Dear Mrs Voiss, Our videos do not have sound. We are a worldwide company and our videos are watched by people around the world, speaking different languages, many of whom do not understand English. We have therefore written instructions to accompany this video, and there is no sound to disturb while watching. Enjoy!
