Here is a simple tutorial to make it easier for my blog readers, or visitors.
Pin the zipper to the knitted piece, using a sewing pins.
If using a layer of fabric, pin the zipper between the two layers of fabric and knitted fabric.
|Step 1 - pin together zipper and knitted fabric|

Using a needle and a tread sew together the layers with easily removable thread. The stitches can be long and slightly loose as they will be later removed. Remove the pins.
|Step 2 - loosely sew together the zipper and fabric layers. |
Using a sewing machine, or by hand, sew the zipper firmly to the knitted fabric, and (if using) to the fabric.
|Step 3 - zipper sewn by hand|

The zipper should be securely attached. Remove the loosely sewn thread from Step 2.
