This border is NOT WORKING!
So after much consideration, I decided to work a seed st border on moms sweater instead of the 1x1 ribbing the pattern gives. In the pattern, it looks stretched or loose or something and I really didn't want to go for that look. Now, I know that seed st is wide so I went down 2 needle sizes and dec sts (one inch) in the hopes that it would make the border tighter. Nope. I guess I will have to frog it and dec more sts? Or try the ribbing which doesn't thrill me. Either way, more frogging and it is frustrating being delayed because of the last six rows of a piece!
