Finished zip up cardigan
I was planning on putting this up some time ago but was delayed because I was too angry at my sewing machine to figure out why it wouldn't work on my sweater, so I finally just sewed it by hand. It was supposed to be for my nieces birthday back in January but it is a little late now.

That pattern is here, http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/zippy/zippy.html, if that doesn't work it is on berroco.com under free children's patterns called zippy cardigan. I used caron simply soft yarn, but I think I should have used smaller needles because my stitches are kind of loose. I didn't do a guage swatch though so it is my own fault. Oh well. The lovely little model is my daughter, Tonda.

What a cutey!!! The sweater turned out really nice.

The few times I put zippers in knits, I hand sewed them.
I think it's easier to keep the knit fabric from stretching.

I"ve never even SEWN a zipper....that is majorly lacking in my "sewing education"

after my gf has her baby, I'm going to have her show me, so I can do cool things like that sweater~!!

Re: Finished zip up cardigan
BEEE-u-ti-FUL (FO and model)

That pattern is here,
Quote:
http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/zippy/zippy.html, if that doesn't work it is on berroco.com
This link will work http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/zippy/zippy.html
(the comma after html was throwing it off)

Keep at it.
P.S. What size did you make for this?
