Zipper Tutorial: How to sew a zipper into a knit cardigan
I've written a comprehensive zipper tutorial for inserting a zipper into a knit cardigan. It discusses insertion with or without the zipper teeth showing when the sweater is zipped, as well as a discussion on machine sewing vs hand sewing the zipper into place. It also offers an option for using double-sided wash-a-way tape in order to help make the process a little less painful. It may be found at
Warm regards,
