Pidge anyone

it curls when done in stockinnette stitch
knitted it garter stitch
knit in back of each stitch
cute but not worth 275.00

Well, it’s an itty bitty thing and I think grossly overpriced. I could make the same thing using yummy soft environmentally firendly bamboo for a WHOLE lot less than what they are selling it for. I mean a really whole lot less! Like $230 less than what they are selling it for. It’s a cute “scarflet” and I may make one for my mom. But not from the kit.

You could even make one using the exact same cashmere yarn that they’re using for a whole heck of a lot less.

Not that I would make one. They’re not that cute, IMO.

it seems that this is knitted like a tube
doesnt look like it in the picture
i cant believe i am obssession over a rectangle scarfette

can you link please ? :slight_smile:

WHAT???/ oh my goodness…

is this an original creation? I understand “what the market will bear”…but geesh…

how do you wear it? dickie kind of thing? under a coat? I can see that in realllyyyyyyyyyy fine yarn…

There’s a group on Ravelry (I think it’s called “Smidge”) that is deconstructing the Pidge…they’re pretty close to figuring out the stitch pattern :teehee:

cant remember where i posted about pidge
found a way to knit this without it curling
i cast on even stitches
knit 1, slip 1 purlways continue across row
end with slip one
rather cute
caused a ruckus on another forum
was told any 5 year old could figure out this scarf
and told designers can charge whatever they want
but this is knit on a knitting board which i am not interested
so 275.00 is still riduclous for a scarfet
lots of snarky remarks

:nails: What’s the point of people being so mean? Maybe it makes them feel superior, but then they’ve got other problems.


That’s why I love [I]this[/I] place! :grphug:

That is rude! Glad you figured out what works for you!

ETA: I saw a scarf pattern like that and I can’t remember where! Ack!

I found it!! It’s a free sample pattern at Knitting Software!

Maybe you can adapt this to what you want.

jan thanks for the link

You’re welcome! It actually looks like you could do any stitch with it, too.

Great Christmas gifts!
