Joan, I'm not sure, but it seems like the Knit More Girls did a tutorial on this last year.

Jeepers creepers! I only paid around $40-50!

I did check for it on Amazon. The cheapest one I could find was around $56. There was a new one for around $180. And there was a used one for $3,385.

Which is best, putting zipper in a hoodie on sewing machine, or by hand.  thanks Joan

It is a nice sweater. Book is out of print and only available through virtual yarns online which is based in Great Britain

Yes, I think a henley would be really nice.  Now I want one!

AB, I think doing it with a steek is the best way. I'm not quite sure how that would be if you do it as a Henley, but I'm sure it can be done.

Thats a great pattern. I'm stuck in my ways and love the pattern I'm using. I may just steek but only have the zipper go down a little bit so more henley like. I've never put in a zipper but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. I can always ship it to my cousin who can steek and put in zipper for me while I help her through learning lace.
