I dunno what that thing is it looks like an itty bitty knitting machine. I like how they say cashmere is good for the environment. Don't cashmere goats totally rape the ground with their hooves? I thought I heard something on NPR about how an explosion of cashmere in China has ruined parts of the land making the earth so compacted there that nothing can grow and causing respitory problems for old people all the way over here.
I couldnt figure out how much it is could somebody clue me in I wanna rant too. I wouldn't stress too much about the stitch pattern anything you make it in would be nice. Its just a straight piece of knitting with some buttonholes anyways. In fact, I think it would look even nice done in entrelac or with some cables.

Ohhh ok its 275! I looked at the site a little more. It also dawned on me that that is the only thing the make. I love how when you click on *THE* Collection its just a scarf. LOL so silly.

 Shocked
Wow, I have to agree, even I skein of really good cashmere would not be $275.00. 
I think the pattern is a twisted knit pattern.  You could try this:

Knit row:  Knit through the back of the loop across
Purl row:  Purl
Repeat.

I think this will give you that zig-sag look.

Why would anyone buy a short scarf for $375?? That is beyond crazy. They must be making a hell of a profit.

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.


the tiny swatch (debbie bliss cashmerino aran)

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)

Wow.  I agree it's insane to pay $275 (and more) for a scarf, but I guess folks who don't know how to knit...would Tongue
