Eyelet pattern in a Pidge?
I'm making a pidge for my DHs cousin. I tossed around the idea of doing a feathers & fans pattern or a twisted moss stitch. Which would you do?

There were some threads about it a little while back. Here http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/sh...ighlight=pidge is the one that I caught. Or you can just see a pic of one for sale here - http://www.3feapparel.com/pageShopOnline-Biscuit.html

Cool. I still have no idea what a pidge actually is.

A classy way to use up half a skein?

A pidge is a short scarf that buttons at the bottom. The very fashionable (and seemingly, desirable) pidge sells for something like $325 on the website linked above in Newbie2Knitting's post.

Most knitters who see it shudder that anyone would pay that kind of money for a scarf when they could hand knit one very close to the real thing for much cheaper. I'm attempting my own version from this pattern out of Debbie Bliss Pure Cashmere that I got on sale at LittleKnits.com for a mere $8.99 a skein. My attempt at the Pidge will probably take about 4 or 5 skeins and cost me a whopping $45 plus buttons.

The real mystique about the pidge for a while was how to recreate the stitch pattern. I think someone figured out was done on a knitting loom as opposed to needles. There was a group devoted to deciphering the pattern and recreating the pidge on their own on Ravelry. If you are interested and search the Ravelry groups for "Smidge" you will find it there.

Oh, and IMO, for a pidge, I'd go for the twisted Moss stitch.

Best,
Susan

LOL at CountryKitty & Knitting_Guy. ZKIMom, I have that very same pattern. I did a swatch of it and they're right. It *does* knit up very bulky. I'm a slower-than-snot knitter, too, so I thought I'd go with something faster for me to do. I was leaning more toward the twisted moss as well, so that's what I'm off to do.

I made one wit the twisted moss stitch and another using a popcorn or trinity stitch. They knit up so quickly.
