I don't know if you all have seen the Pidge, a knitted neck scarf that sells for about $300!!! Anyway, I saw it and thought... that would look GREAT in Tunisian Crochet. I wasn't about to spend a ton on pure cashmere but I did spend $14 on 2 skeins of LB Organic Cotton that is SO soft. I haven't bought the buttons yet but I just couldn't wait to post a pic.

I'm working on writing up the pattern. It took me some trial and error to figure out how to do button holes in Tunisian :lol

It's awesome! I've been thinking about trying one of those.

Great for the cold weather. I made one in wool but it's a bit tickley. I'll make another in something softer. Zaraliz

Nice pattern. I looked at the website and saw some men wearing it. I don't think my husband would wear the pidge.
