The lower border - continued

The Border:

Here is the border pattern, completed. I pinned it to the carpet, because it rolls up otherwise. I also folded the ribbed facing under it. This is how the hem should look, but without the pins.

I really hope I don't have to rip this out.

Now that's pretty - and truly deserving of the polkadot jersey!

That looks wonderful! Fabulous job! Are you trying to break away form the peleton for bonus points? Seriously though I hope you don't have to frog. Fingers crossed.

Thanks for the well-wishes. But they didn't work. :-( The lower hem is too small.

I decided to do what I should have done in the first place and start on a sleeve. I will measure the gauge again on the sleeve and make adjustments if necessary before starting on the body again. I have alos made some other adjustments to the pattern. There were a few things that just didn't make sense.

Photos of the sleeve coming tomorrow.
