I bought the pattern 2 days ago and started to knit but I 'm also having troubles with the Short-Rows. I looked at some videos for the technique but according to me, there is somehow something wrong with the pattern.

It says to turn at the end of every row but then there is no space to put the arm & hand through the sleeve ...

Can someone help me out here please?

I am having a lot of troubele with the short rows!  they are new to me and I have looked up tutorials so am getting the hang of them, but the pattern as I read it indicates that they happen at the wrist which is obviously wrong.   can anyone clarify this for me please?

I have started tihs sweater.  However, it does not appear that it allows for a buttonhole.  OK, but the photo seems to accomodate a button hole. What is the stoiry here?  Cute little sweater, and it is coming along nicely, but I need to know about the buttonhole.  I guess I could include it, (or not).  Just not all that clear.
