Here is a slightly closer view, minus the festoon of stitch markers and T pins.
The ideas behind the stitch patterns are,from left to right, tyre tracks for the sprinters, a winding path representing the mountain stages for les Maillots aux Pois Rouges, more tyre tracks then some diamond shapes to represent the Peleton. Finally, the lines of stacked eyelets represent the rows of riders in the Grand Depart. The patterns are mirrored on the other side of the stole.
Now it's just a question of how much stamina I have to complete as much as possible before the end of the tour. Anyone seen my helmet?
