Hi there! I’ve just finished knitting a cardigan (my first adult sweater!! YEAH!). It was easier than I thought and am pretty happy with it. I used Knitting Pure & Simple neckdown jacket pattern #201. The instructions were very clear and I’d recommend it for anyone who is just starting out on sweaters.
Now I have to sew in the zipper and have never dealt with zippers before. The pattern calls for a separating zipper. My LYS told me to base stitch the zipper in place and then hand sew it in. My problem is that the sweater is stockinet stich and the edges where the zipper goes is curling. What should I do? Ignore the curling and go ahead and base stich the zipper in anyway? Helpppp!!!
