Sorry, Folks! I totally promised you that I’d tell you about adding the zippers to my husband’s sweater… and then I didn’t. My husband has been wearing his sweater almost every day for the past month or so, so it’s starting to look a little lived-in, but it’s still holding up pretty well.
Anyway, here’s the zipper. (I think it turned out pretty well.)
I don’t really have a secret to zipper installation, or any magic techniques. I just pin them very carefully and make sure that both sides match up well.
Then, I use a needle and thread to carefully sew the zipper to the knitting, trying my best to make the stitches on the outside of the sweater hidden. That means the inside stitches end up being a little messy, but the inside isn’t the important part.
Easy, right? Sort of, anyway.
Have you ever used a zipper for your sweater?
Thanks for sharing, I have never used a zipper in knitting before but now it doesn’t look so scary!
