Has anyone tried the octagon purse from Loop-d-Loop? 

I decided to make it for the Knitting Olympics and cast on at 2 today, and then cast on again, and now, things just don't seem quite right with the short rows.  Actually, I think I have the concept of short rows, I just don't understand the directions. 

If anyone has tackled this one, and has any advice, I would appreciate it.

Thanks,
Julie

This is on my to-knit list, but I haven't quite gotten around to it yet.

My website is coming together nicely! Please send me feedback, as I don't know how well it works on systems other than mine.

Scroll down and you'll find a good video that tells you how to do both short rows and wraps.  They're really easy once you understand what's going on.

Teva Durham's descriptions for a short row with a wrap are a little confusing.
