Pattern Description:

Zopf is a type of Swiss bread that is baked in the form of a plait and traditionally eaten on Sunday mornings. The name "Zopf" is derived from the shape of the bread, and literally means "braid."
This small scarf uses the Entrelac technique to make the look of warm braids with yarn. You can make this pretty little neckwarmer with just one skein of cashmere blend yarn (or other DK wt yarn). Entrelac is French for "inter-laced." The use of short rows creates a woven look which is an appealing use of this self -color-blocking yarn. Solids also look nice with technique. I-cord button loops attach to decorative buttons on this short neckwarmer- no buttonholes needed.


6-7 sts/ in. in Stockinette St, unblocked


  • 200 yds dk wt yarn (sample used 1 skein Noro Shiraito yarn - 45% Cashmere, 45% Angora, 10% Wool)

You Will Also Need:

  • US4 (3.5mm) needles (circular or straight), (2) US4 DPNs, (2) decorative buttons + (1) plain button (your choice size)
