This $280 Mega Scarf Is Going Viral For All The Wrong Reasons

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to be swallowed by a python, here’s your chance to find out. The Daily Mail described it best when they called this Dukyana creation a “giant sock.” But what is it, really? It’s a mohair “tube” listed under the “scarves” section of the Bulgarian designer’s website. It’s a piece of clothing that literally covers you from head to toe and appears to serve no purpose.

We’re not sure what Dukyana had in mind when she made this. Perhaps she royally effed up while she was knitting a sweater and just said, “Fuck it. It’s a scarf now”?

For $280, you’d expect there to be arm holes in this thing, but nope. It’s actually an armless version of Dukyana’s sweater dress, which makes way more sense as a clothing item.

One online commenter referred to the oversized scarf as “a knitted straitjacket… for the winter.”

On the Vogue Knitting Facebook page, comments ranged from “I could sew up the bottom and have an adult sleep sack” to “You could get rid of a dead body in one of those and keep your rug!”

The sweater, er, scarf doesn’t appear anywhere on Dukyana’s social media platforms. Did she take it down or never put it up in the first place? Perhaps she was wearing her own creation and didn’t have access to her typing fingers?

If you want to buy the world’s most expensive White Elephant gift, the tube comes in five colors. None of which are the color of envy.
