    I am so grateful that I was able to find a scarf pattern in your back issues section. I received rave reviews on the “short row scarf” I found in the March 2008 issue and made for Christmas presents for family. When I finally decided to make one for myself, I couldn’t find my copy. UGH!!! Wasn’t sure what magazine it was in but, thankfully found it here!! I used Kureon for the yarn and they were all beautiful!!

    Also, I have a question. When knitting an stocking knit afgan in vertical sections that need to be joined together, what method do you suggest so that both sides look finished. I haven’t had much success even though the recipient loved it, I felt it lacked a finished look.
