The Pidge Scarf

I am reading people talking about this scarf everywhere. Many needle knitters have been trying to figure out what stitch was used to make this scarf. I have read all kinds of interesting ways they think this scarf is made.

It is hard to believe that none of them checked out the rest of the site. It was one of the first things I did. I wanted to know about the site, the people, and any extra info on these scarfs. I thought it would help me understand that out of this world price they are charging for these simple, little, short, I don't contain much scarves. That lead me to the "About" and the pictures of the "knitting boards" being used. Naturally since I do board knitting it wasn't hard for me to figure out.

So here it is folks, it is a knitting board being used, not a knitting needle. You can accomplish that stitch on a needle though by using the twisted knit stitch, but you are not going to get that same thickness unless you double knit the scarf. That is not impossible, but I wonder if you could get that wonderful slanted look doing needle double knitting.

ROFLOL, it is a neck warmer. A simple figure eight on a board neck warmer. Oh with buttons. They do use a bit more expensive yarn and the buttons are wood but it is still a neck warmer.
