You can buy this issue of YarnForward Magazine online at the following link:
This does not have much of a front apart from a 3 ridge garter stitch border all around the edges. This can however be broadened to enable a closure. A front view picture is in the magazine. You can check out the preview in forums.
If you are using the same yarn as the design, in between sizes, or prefer lesser ease, go with one size smaller than your normal choice.
