Q&A with pahinojosa

Marie743 asked:
Great creativity. How did you learn how to put a zipper in a knitted sweater?
pahinojosa answered:
It has to be done by hand. Sewing machine foot messes up the knitting badly. Hand stitches turn out invisible on the knitted side and no one sees the wrong side anyway!
Marie743 asked:
How did the knitting work out using a size 10.5 needle with fingering weight yarn? Was the yarn stretched a lot to accommodate the larger needle?
pahinojosa answered:
Sorry about the confusion of the yarn. I used Lion Brand Yarn Vanna's Choice which is a medium weight yarn
Marie743 asked:
Thanks for the info on the zipper. Did you do small stitches like you would do for a hem on a dress or was there a special stitch? Did you stitch tightly?
pahinojosa answered:
No particular stitch just back stitch. I did pin the zipper to the edges with regular sewing straight pins.
