Came upon this piece when looking for a sewing solution,

Zippers in Knitwear, The No-sewing Way

I'm still not knitting but I have several beautiful garments that were knit by my mom - and I was her knitwear zipper installer - . This looks like a useful bit of information.

I didn't find a general information knitting thread so please feel free to park any helpful information or links here. Adding at the bottom to help folks find this in the future.

Fascinating idea on the zippers! Nice idea to create a knitting tip thread as well.

I haven't actually used this website, but found it recently:
knittinghelp.com

The Craft Yarn Council website has a page with standards. The links are on the left of the page, with the bottom one being a downloadable PDF. I found it helpful. I learned about it from the Craftsy learn to crochet class; it applies to both knitting & crocheting.

With a great wardrobe that's still in the flat-fabric stage.

Thanks for posting this link on zippers in knitwear. Also, AnneM, I can vouch for the KnittingHelp.com site, I basically taught myself to knit using it! Lots of clearly written instructions and videos.
