Putting a Zipper into Knits


puttingzipperinknitsputtingzipperinknitsa

OMG!!! How unique. Now this is the best way I have seen to put a zipper in knits. I found the site on pinterest this morning. You can go to the site and it is in Swedish but it is also translated into English. She has this sewing of zipper outlined step  by step with pictures. I just grabbed a swatch of fabric and a zipper to give it a try. In a nutshell, you will use the latch tool to crochet up the zipper. then you take a piece of the fabric yarn and sew the purl stitches of the sweater to the zipper stitches that you crocheted in. I can’t wait to try this. I just guessed on the crocheting and did not make loops perfect like hers since this was just a test. I also did not use matching yarn obviously. 🙂 And…the zipper opens past the knit without catching the knit fabric. It looks so much nicer than sewing with a machine!

You have to try this!
