Notes

Working the yoke flat open to insert a zipper and adjusting for the difference in vertical gauge.
I added a salvedge stitch at the end of each row when working flat.

I measured where I wanted the zipper to end and joined to work in the round from there.

I used Petiteknit technique to sew the zipper in place.
