I'm about to embark on my next ridiculous project but I'm trying to plan this one out in advance.
I'm modifying the Avast pattern from Knitty, but I'm planning on having a big knitted image on the front (see the picture for my early trial of color work). The pattern calls for a 90 degree switch for the bands that the zipper will go into. Is this absolutely necessary? I'm hoping to just work in the stockinette stitch and sew the zipper to the edge of that.
Does anyone know if that will work okay? Is there something I need to do on the edge where the zipper will go to make this okay?
I'm trying to plan this out so my first attempt will be gorgeous.
