Attaching a Border to the Edge of a Sweater
After joining the shoulder and side seams of a baby bolero (knitted in stockinette stitch), the directions read to "cast on five stitches and work in garter stitch until border fits from centre to lower back edge....sewing in place as you work. Continue in garter stitch and increase one st at inside edge of next row and 7 foll 4th rows, ending at stratight outer edge. 13 stitches."

How do I join the border to the body of the sweater as I work????

Thank-you in advance for your input!

You don't attach it as you knit, but rather sew it with a tapestry needle and yarn. You could sew it after you're done knitting, but this assures that it will fit better. I'd knit a few inches, sew a few inches.
