You have stated my question just right. Sometimes assumptions are right. LOL
Very good video!
Since the question was about using Japanese short rows apparently instead of the method called for in the pattern I thought the one I linked to might help understand how to change from one style to the other. Of course there was an assumption that the pattern calls for short rows and we know about assumptions. Hopefully more info will be given so if the question hasn't been answered we can keep trying.
