Cardi
I LOVE the cardi but I have not yet got used to the idea of putting a zipper in my knit sweaters...
My friend does it all the time and they looook great.. But I am so used to buttons..
Sure I could do the same sweater but put botttons on it..

Has anyone who's finished this washed it yet? I'm wondering about the zipper, does it shrink? On a few sweaters that I've had the zipper either shrinks or bends up, which does NOT look good.

Care instructions? How would you wash it?

I've never had a zipper shrink in my sewing stuff. I haven't gotten to the part where I put the zipper in my cardi, yet.

If it's somethink you're really worried about, why don't you put the zipper in a lingerie bag and throw it in the washer with a load of clothes before you put it in your sweater.
