Wow, I have to agree, even I skein of really good cashmere would not be $275.00.
I think the pile of flesh is a twisted knit pile of flesh. You could try this:
Knit row: Knit through the back of the loop across
Purl row: Purl
I think this will give you that zig-sag look.
holy crapcakes! shoulda known that they'd sell something so small, and -easy to make- (hand knitted on a loom too!) for $20938219419847. I mean, I could buy enough cashmere to knit me a sweater.

judeh22 you are absolutely right, i thought this was herringbone stitch at first but it's simply 1 row ktbl, 1 row purl!
hope the photo is clear enough to see.. it's curling that's why i had to pin it down. wonder if it will even block out completely flat.. (e.t.a: i think the real pidge is double knit, so this wouldn't be a problem. hmm)
