How can they sell this?
How can they sell this for $275?!?!? I can't believe how simple it is... It was just advertised on CW Now as the "in" thing this season...

The Pidge

That's it... I'm off to copy-cat it

I think someone else posted something similar recently -- the same type of garment but a different shop, and I think those were even more pricey. It's got to be the cashmere.

Edited to add: I just clicked around on that site a bit, and the striped ones are even more...$330!!! And at least one that I clicked on was sold out. Amazing.

When you think about it, the cost of the cashmere yarn, and the time spent knitting it. (Paying someone by the hour) the cost isn't all that bad.......
Plus like the last person said.......if people are will to buy them?
Most of the things we on here knit, could you imagine the cost to buy them in stores......
Although you can't put a price on how much love is put in every stitch.....

I'm going to try and make one for myself from this pattern. I got some Debbie Bliss Pure Cashmere for less than $9 a skein at littleknits.com and each scarf will cost a whopping $40 plus the cost of buttons.

Even if I made it with Lobster Pot Cashmere which is yummy and hand dyed, it would only cost about $85 for the yarn.

I wonder who is buying them?
