I think I ended up sewing up the side till I got to the short rows & then slip stitching thru there to the last 3 or 4 stitches & finishing the attaching there. Whatever, it made sense at the time and I got it to work nicely. Thank you for sharing the pattern!
Here are mine, made out of Senso cotton crochet thread.
Actually they're not mine. They're for a secret pal at another board...shhh, nobody tell. hehe. I may make myself some now tho.
