Zip up jacket finished

just finished a zip up jacket for my 5 year old nephew just in time for his birthday this week. It's the first time I have tried sewing in a zip and it wasn't too hard. The collar was only supposed to have a couple of rows of the contrasting colour, but I changed it to make the inside all grey instead I think it looks good.

I think it took me longer to sew it all together than it did to knit it!
The pattern I got from a UK magazine Simply Knitting November 2006.
Now back to the throw that I am slowly making progress on.

Very nice! I'll agree with everyone that the collar looks great with the entire inside gray. In fact, I think it would look a little silly with only a couple rows of the cc.

Well done! I like the collar just as you did it. The entire jacket looks really great!

My knitting is totally tubular!

Hi Rory, The jacket looks

Hi Rory,

The jacket looks great! Knitting the inside of the collar in all grey added a very nice accent to the jacket.
