In this workshop, you’ll learn everything you need to know to install zippers into sweaters by installing a 6-inch zipper on a swatch—with NO SEWING! We’ll use a Knit Picker tool to pick up stitches along our zippers and join these zippers to our knitting. 

Date/Time: Friday, September 27, 2024 6:00-9:00 PM

Supplies:

  • Fingering weight yarn in any color for picking up stitches along the zipper. I recommend a strong, plied, wool sock yarn in a light color.
  • Worsted weight yarn (the yarn used for the swatches or another color)
  • Circular needle (any length) in the size used to knit your swatch A
  • Second circular needle or a double-pointed needle in the size used to knit your swatch
  • Ruler at least 6 inches long
  • Fine-point gel pen or marker
  • Optional: If you have a sweater in which you’d like to install a zipper, feel free to bring it! We can talk about how to approach installing your zipper when you get home.

Materials Fee: $5 for Knit Picker, zipper, ribbon and thread (paid directly to teacher in class - exact change appreciated)

Homework: Knit a Stockinette stitch swatch, approximately 6 inches by 6 inches, in worsted weight yarn.

Skill Level: Intermediate. Experience picking up stitches and calculating gauge.
