If I remember correctly the short rows add an extra row of cables on the back side. All the short rows are done back and forth right at the beginning.

Did I just read it wrong, or could I have possibly placed the short row markers in the wrong place to start out with? I was making the 0-3 months size.
your stitch marker should have been in the front center....then you had your short row markers 19 stitches after the main stitch marker and the 2nd short row marker 52 stitches after the main stitch marker.

when you go to do the gusset you need to slip 30 stitches on a waste yarn...10 stitches on a dpn, 30 stitches on another waste yarn and then the last 10 stitches on a dpn

if you do that then all of it should be centered with the short rows

you're right I think I did the 10 gusset stitches first O well, I did these with yarn from HL that I got for $3 a skein and I didn't even use a whole skein! I am just going to do it again! Thanks!

That's so awesome, go Dani!

Twisty trousers, I've never knit them, so I'm no help I've only done side cabled longies and didn't use a pattern for them.

okay off to bed...heading to seattle in the morning. Think I'll be finishing up the hh on the road and creating a bunch of crocheted mittens. (darn owl ornament pattern was 3.50...and you know how I hate to spend money )

need to get my yarn together for it ... but I'm too tired.

and Fi...if you are on... my glasses are going to get steamed up But Benj is breathing fire
