What About a Seed Stitch Band Along Garder Stitch?
Now that I've read your 'using short rows in the button band' I am wondering if I should try something similar?

I was impatient to use a new pair of size 3 KP fixed circulars so I started a free form dishcloth with garder stitch in the center and planned on having a seed stitch border around on all 4 sides. Is there a difference in row gauge between the garder and seed stitches?

I don't think you will have any problem!

The problem with the buttonbands and garter stitch next to st st is that there are SO MANY ROWS that are of uneven height stacking up against one another from hemline to neckline!

Go ahead and make your dishcloth as per normal!

There is a GREAT BOOK called "Seven Things that can Make or Break a Sweater" by Margaret E. Fisher.

I just took a class at Stitches South in Atlanta with Margaret (he, he, notice the first name basis) The class I took was called "A Sampling of Stitches" and she was WONDERFUL ... now I wish I had taken the sweater class, too. I did get the book and I am going to use it as a reference making "Carnival Top" on the cover of Knit n Style.

I just finished the Heirloom Cabled Raglan Baby Sweater from the latest Interweave magazine and that would have helped so much. I will remember this for the next one. Bless you!!!!

I was making a "falling water" scarf recently and realized that the garter stitch band was a tighter gauge than than pattern stitch. I immediately thought of this post and applied your technique. Saved my scarf! Thank you!
