I saw those! I remember thinking that $275 was ridiculous, even if it i cashmere! I toyed with the idea of making my own, and now that I've seen yours, I think I'm going to. It turned out so well! Your model looks so happy to be modeling it, lol

(P.S. I'd buy it from you before buying it from the website!)

Oooh!  I like it!  I just knitted one myself!  I think this company inadvertantly started a new trend among crafters!

Super job! I just checked the Pidge...$275 (solids) $330 (striped) $375 (limited editions) holy moly. I'm assuming these actually button? Some look tighter around the neck, so would have to be adjustable. Might have to give these a try after seeing yours!

LOL yeah doesn't he look thrilled to be my model for the day?

I made this for maybe 50 cents? I had a skein of wool-ease bought on clearance for $1.25 and could probably make 4 more smidges from the skein. Then 2 buttons I probably took off a garment that wasn't wearable anymore. so 50 cents may even be stretching the total cost.
The pidge site is a riot, they keep changing their story on what its made form, how it's made etc. $300 for an 1/8th of a scarf?Huh
The buttons are functional on the pidge and the smidge knock off but have seen some do them with no button holes then use picks, broaches and such to close them instead.
And this took me probably 30 minutes including making a swatch of a few stitches to determine stitch and amount to cast on, all the way through weaving in ends, adding buttons and blocking.
So I'm thinking Super cute, Super easy, Super cheap present to make in a jiffy.

well I love it. Is it just like a small version of a scarf? I'm having a hard time seeing it from the pictures on the site. I can't tell if the end is at an angle or not. Maybe I'm just looking too closely! haha

Thanks Smiley
On my version the end is angled because of the stitch i chose it will naturally angle. The original it is based from does not angle.
Dimensions are 4.25 in x 23.5 inches and the buttons do work so you can wrap it around and button it on instead of pulling it over your head and creating static!!!
