A pidge scarf is a short cashmere scarf closed with two buttons. The "Pidge Scarf" was originally created and manufactured by the defunct company 3FeApparrel. After appearing in Daily Candy's internet mailer on September 19, 2007  a large group of hobby knitters were inspired to knit similar scarves. This was most prevalent and documented on the knitting club site ravelry.com. Since that time, there have been multiple blogs and threads discussing the best pattern for duplicating this short scarf, numerous yarn stores teaching techniques for this scarf as well as internet tutorials.
The Pidge scarf has yielded numerous nicknames to hypothetically bypass the trademark ownership. These names include: podge, midge, fidget , smidge , and pidge-podge .
