Friday AM: No Sew Zippers with Ann Weaver


Instructor: Ann Weaver

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


12 in stock


Skill Level: Intermediate or adventurous beginner. Must be able to knit, purl, and easily pick up stitches.


  • Materials fee of $3 for tool
  • Fingering weight yarn in a light color for picking up stitches along the zipper. Ann recommends a strong, plied, wool sock yarn.
  • Smooth, light colored worsted weight yarn
  • Needles to match your yarn
  • Ruler at least 6″ long
  • Fine-point gel pen or marker
  • Ann will provide Knit Picker tools, zippers, ribbon, and thread
  • Optional: If you have a sweater in which you’d like to install a zipper, feel free to bring it and an appropriate zipper. Choose a separating zipper in the size closest to the length of your front edging; choose the size just under the actual length. Even better, order a customized zipper from Zipperstop!


  • Knit 2 Stockinette stitch swatches, approximately 6×6″ in your worsted weight yarn. Web block and pin edges to prevent rolling.
