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 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 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!
