Well, almost none. I finished the Eyelet Cardi for my mother last night. The only sewing required was a little bit under the arms, the button and the button loop and weaving in the ends. How good is that?
This cardi is knitted in Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 8ply in Delphinium (in my previous post I incorrectly called it Periwinkle). I used 4mm and 3.5mm needles. The only modifications I made were to make the sleeves full length rather than 3/4 and I knitted 4 rows garter stitch for the edging rather than just 2. Because the yarn is so soft I knew the edges would roll so I hoped the couple of extra rows of edging might help prevent that. Time will tell.
This is a top-down pattern and very easy to knit. If you need some soothing, mindless knitting then this is the pattern for you.
Now I'm hurrying off to knit some socks and lace.
