Ok, I really don’t have a huge problem with this. I mean, if you’re into the whole New Age Boho style of cultural appropriation and really like the I Couldn’t Find My Coat But This Blanket Should Do look, fine. Whatevs. What gets me is that this thing is called “Panini.” What the hell does this hippy shawl/poncho/wrap/comforter thing have to do with panini? It is, by the way, knit in a yarn called Peruvia. Peru? Italy? Huh?

Peruvia also retails for about $7.50 a skein. The pattern calls for 17 skeins. That’s $127.50 (!?).

I’d rather use the $130 to stock my freezer with 45 frozen panini.
