Not used very frequently.

I might say ´ved håndleddene´ in this case.

1 cm ribkant ved den nederste søm og håndleddene.

or simply:
1 cm ribkant nederst og ved håndleddene.

(I suspect that there is no actual hem if there is a ribbed edge, but your source text does not sound like native English to me.)

"a cuff" er helt korrekt en "manchet", så jeg ville nok sige "knapper på kraven og manchetterne"
