Sewing a Zipper into a Cardigan

I'll never forget talking with one of the authors of a pattern book for extremely cute children's sweaters. She said that if a pattern calls for a zipper, she won't even consider it. Since most directions I've encountered for inserting zippers say something like, "Sew in zipper", I felt there was a need for a tutorial for knitters who want to install zippers. People who sew clothes often have a bit of training and experience with zipper insertion, but it might be a little bit harder for knitters...

I am going to share with you a method for zipper insertion which I developed as I sewed zippers into more than half a dozen handknit sweaters over the years. Since I learned to sew long before I learned to knit, my method employs some of the techniques I learned in various sewing books and classes, though I've adapted the techniques to apply them to handknit items.

The sewing may be done by machine, or by hand. It all depends on the garment, the presence or lack of a sewing machine, and/or personal preference.

A zipper that is going to be used in a cardigan must be able to separate, and the zipper package will say "separating" someplace on it.Often I will plan my knitting so that the front opening will be just the right size for a "standard" zipper length, typically 18", 22", 24", etc. If I finish the sweater and discover that my opening isn't quite the same as a standard zipper length, then I'll purchase a zipper slightly shorter than the opening. (Generally over time and with wear, my handknit sweaters get a little bit wider and shorter...so it is better to have the zipper be slightly shorter than the front edge rather than longer. Sometimes the front edge may be "eased" a little bit into a shorter length zipper...or, the zipper can begin and end half inch from the top and/or bottom of the sweater. (I haven't had much luck with shortening cardigan zippers... It either gets too bulky having the zipper coil turned back on itself at the top of the zipper, or if the excess coil is cut off, then I worry about the zipper tape unravelling.) When selecting a zipper, if I can't find an exact color match, I'll go a little bit darker, or I'll go with something neutral, such as black or navy to go with darker colors, etc.

For my Murphy sweater, my opening is about 22", though I couldn't find a very good match to the blue, so the zipper I purchased was 22" long, navy, and separating. (Note that there are also choices for zipper style, such as sport versions having large plastic teeth, or coiled teeth, or metal teeth, etc. These are all a matter of personal preference. Most critical is getting the right length, color, and that it will separate.)

I prepare the zipper for installation. I almost always use this tape (Wash-A-Way Wonder Tape).... It is not necessary, but I find that it is helpful.Place a length of the tape along the outside edges of the right side of the zipper. Here the zipper is shown with the tape still having the paper backing on it. With the zipper still zipped, remove the paper backing of the tape, and fold the top edges of the zipper tape down to overlap the top front of the zipper, making sure that the part which is folded over will not interfere with the movement of the slider. I generally put another piece of the double sided tape along each of the edges which have just been folded over. (Note: Do not cut off the excess zipper tape. It is typically woven, and it will unravel. Once the zipper has been sewn in, it will barely be noticeable.)

With zipper still zipped, align each cardigan front edge with the zipper tape, taking care to position the front edges of the cardigan where you want them to be. (Sometimes you want the zipper to be seen when it is zipped. Sometimes you want the zipper to be hidden when it is zipped. For the latter case, there will probably be some sort of special treatment on the front edges, such as a folded over placket, or an I-cord knit in, which will form the portion which will cover the zipper.) For my Murphy sweater, the front edges are made up of garter stitch which is two stitches wide. This particular stitch does not lend itself well to covering over a zipper, so I will be sewing my zipper in so that the zipper teeth will be seen when the zipper is closed. Also, this is how it is shown in the magazine photo.

When placing the zipper into position, it is also critical that any horizontal "lines" inherent in the garment match up. For instance, in my Murphy sweater, I want the part where the collar is attached to line up, that is, to be in the same position on the right side as it is on the left side. Similarly, the top edges should line up, and the bottom edges should line up when the zipper is closed. (The horizontal white strips shown in this next photo mark the places in which alignment is critical.) This photo shows the zipper taped in place, though I've added some stick pins to hold it together, too.Specific to this project, as I'm placing the zipper into my Murphy sweater, I am positioning the knitted fabric so that it is almost next to the zipper teeth (though not so close that it will interfere with the movement of the slider), and taking care so that the base of the collar on the left side lines up with the base of the collar on the right side. My Murphy sweater has a collar facing which will be folded over after the zipper is inserted, so I will align the top edges of my zipper to a position just below the fold line of the collar. Finally, I will make sure that my bottom edges are all even, too.

Press down firmly on the taped areas to allow the tape to adhere well. (If the assembly is allowed to sit for a few hours, the tape seems to become a bit tackier and adheres better. However, this also will make it be a bit "gummy", but for me, it is a small price to pay for the "help" in holding things together better.) Carefully unzip the zipper. I generally add many pins to keep the zipper/garment properly in place.

(Now a word about machine sewing versus hand sewing the zipper into place. Any zipper may be sewn in by hand. Only certain zipper installations allow for sewing in by machine. If the zipper is going to be hidden by a folded over or I-corded front edge, it will probably work best to sew by hand, since you don't want the machine stitching to ruin the look of the folded over facing, etc. An example of this can be found here. (Scroll down to the bottom of the linked page.) If the zipper isn't going to be hidden, and if the front edges of the garment have a bit of texture, such as seed stitch or garter stitch, then if a nice matching thread is selected, the zipper will lend itself well to being sewn in by machine. The stitches **may** be detected if studied closely, but for the most part, they are very difficult to see. These next photos illustrate this - all of these zippers were sewn in by machine, yet it is extremely difficult to see the lines of stitching.)(One drawback of machine stitching is that it may be more difficult than hand stitching to remove if any adjustments are required in the zipper installation. A couple of advantages, however, are that machine stitching is quite fast, and also very secure.)

Sew a stitching line on each side of the zipper as close to the front edge of the fabric as the garment allows. For my Murphy sweater, I sewed about 1/8" away from the edge of the knitting. I sewed mine using a sewing machine, standard straight stitch (2.5mm), though a longer stitch length (3.0 or 3.5mm) may be better for bulkier knits. If sewing by hand, use a backstitch, being careful to keep stitches from showing on the outside of the garment. (The following diagram illustrates how to do backstitch.)For machine sewing, stitch again about 3/16" away from first stitching to secure outside edges of zipper tape. For hand sewing, secure zipper tape by using a hem stitch to attach it to the garment along the edges.

At this point, feel free to cover the inside of the zipper with your choice of trim. I've never used any sort of decorative covering over my zippers, because I think that if the zipper tape edges are secured neatly by hemming them in place, it already has a very clean finish...but using a nice trim to hide the inside of the zipper might be fun. Again, make sure to keep the edges of the trim far enough away from the zipper teeth to allow free movement of the slider.

For my Murphy sweater, I folded down the collar facing, and used matching thread to secure the front edges of the facing to the zipper tape, again making sure the slider moves freely. Now I'm ready to complete the rest of the sweater!

Feel free to let me know if any of this is confusing, or if anything is missing, or if you've found this information helpful, or if you have a better idea! Have fun!

Warm regards,
Laura (YarnThrower)

Wow! Great tuitorial. You make it look so much easier than how I went about it the last time I tried to put in a zipper. I'm definately going to bookmark this for the next time I put one in. Thanks!

Oh, you are wonderful, Laura! I HATE zippers, and this guide (which I saved as a pdf for posterity) might make me consider doing them again.

Thank you so very much !

I just bought an expensive skirt on which the zipper broke the first time I wore it. I usually go to the dressmaker to have any repairs done because I hate sewing (and I'm lousy at it...). This time however I wasn't about to spend more money on this !@#@#! skirt.
I followed your instructions and What do you know ! I repaired my skirt by myself and it looks perfect.

Thanks again for taking the time to help others.

elizabeth said...

Wow! Thanks! Now all I need is a child's cardigan pattern [size 4] with a zipper in the front that according to The Boy In Question HAS to look like something Mr. Rogers would wear... Does anybody know of one?

Elizabeth

jeanne said...

Thanks for doing this... I've just had my 3rd frog of a zipper, I can see the errors of my ways! One question, do you pre-wash the zipper before applying?
thanks again - Jeanne

YarnThrower said...

Jeanne -- I've never pre-washed a zipper before sewing it into a sweater. My reasoning is that the zipper teeth are generally made out of something that doesn't shrink or expand (like plastic or metal), so I don't worry about the zipper. However, I ALWAYS pre-wash the sweater (block it) prior to putting in the zipper... I hope this helps! Good luck! Laura

YarnThrower said...

Elizabeth -- I don't know of any Mr. Rogers style cardigan patterns, and I've searched for them to make a plain zipped sweater for dh, so I finally decided to make up my own and am only part way through with it. My strategy is to start with a generic cardigan pattern, and leave a little extra room in the front neckline area for the collar. I'm going to have to improvise a little to make a collar that is the right shape. Maybe within the year I'll have something I can publish on the blog. Good luck!

Anonymous said...

Thank you sooo much. This is what I've looking for for year. I will try this method basting by hand first to secure and then by machine.

Helen Feddema said...

Very useful information. I would like to see an example where there are knitted borders that cover the zipper. Would they be worked before putting the zipper in, or after?

I'm doing it your way! I love it, my zipper is coming out great. Only thing is I am handsewing and my needle is sticky from the sticky tape!

The Pedlar said...

Excellent. This is, hands down, the best zipper tutorial I've ever encountered. Thank you.

LaRue said...

This is a great tutorial! I only have one question - what type of needle did you use?

YarnThrower said...

LaRue -- I used the same kind of needle I would use for hand-sewing clothing -- it was rather small in diameter, and quite sharp, so that it would easily go through the zipper tape. (The typical darning needle used for finishing work in knitting would not work...) I hope this helps...

Thank you for this complete and concise instruction. Although I have lots of sewing experience, I was not sure how to attack this zipper installation. This seems very helpful and I will try it!

Carol said...

I have a hand knit jacket with 1.5" wide bands that remains flat on either side of the front. Should I sew gross grain ribbon on the back of each band to stabilize the facings before I add the separating zipper? This is a bulky knit.

YarnThrower said...

Carol -- I've never sewn in grossgrain ribbon to stabilize prior to zipper insertion. The zipper offers some degree of stability to the front bands, and so far I've been happy with my results without the grossgrain ribbon. However, I've never sewn a zipper into a sweater that had bands much more than 3/4"... That said, you might try to sew in your zipper, and then sew in a wider piece of grossgrain ribbon to cover the zipper tape and reinforce the 1.5 inches of band. This would give a nice finished edge (covering over the edges of the zipper) as well as offer stability to the remaining part of your wide front bands... Just some thoughts... Best wishes with your project!

Carol said...

Thanks for your reply! This is a vogue knitting pattern that just says "insert zipper"!! Yes, one of those detailed instructions!

This is great! When I told the ladies at the LYS that I was going to put a zipper in my tomten sweater, not buttons, and they looked sick to their stomachs. I'll admit, it swept away my confidence. I kept thinking, "What do they know that I don't? Have they seen a parade of teary knitters over the years, showing ruined hand knits with mangled zippers?" But now I'm ready to go for it! (Well, after I get that washing tape!)
