The Pidge Scarf is a short cashmere scarf closed with two buttons. The Pidge Scarf, created and manufactured by the company 3Fe Apparel, is hand-knit in the United States [1] with imported Italian cashmere.

After appearing in Daily Candy's internet mailer on September 19, 2007 [2], a large group of hobby knitters were inspired to knitting similar scarves. This was most prevalent and documented on the knitting club site ravelry.com. Since that time, there have been hundreds of blogs and threads discussing the best pattern for duplicating this short scarf, numerous yarn stores teaching techniques for this scarf [3], as well as an internet video on Threadbanger.com [4] explaining their technique of knitting a Pidge Scarf.

The Pidge Scarf has yielded numerous nicknames to hypothetically bypass the trademark ownership of 3Fe Apparel. These names include: podge, midge, fidget [5], smidge [6], and pidge-podge [7].
