Zopf is the word for braid in German language and at the same time it is name of sweet bread which has braid shape.

The pullover is worked seamlessly from the top down.

It is a relatively quick project at a loose gauge with big size needles. In spite of knitting with worsted weight yarn, loose gauge gives soft and light texture and beautiful drape to this pullover.

Enjoy knitting!
