Rose Border Duplicate Stitch

I couldn't live with the original rose border which I totally knit so it went to the frog pond.

Here are the closeups of the duplicate stitch I am doing. You can see the progression that occurs: I knit in just the green areas, and then did the duplicate stitch to make the completed band. It takes some time to get used to it, but I sort of like doing the embroidery on the sweater. It sure does look a whole lot better.

I am starting to think about the front bands, and what I should do with them. Maybe the duplicate stitch, but then again, maybe just gray with the row of red on the edge, as the neckband shows in the original design.
