This isn’t the first time Target’s fashion department has made headlines. You may remember this floral farm dress from Target baked so badly online that it even got a #TargetDressChallenge. But this time around, a cute little crochet sweater is in the spotlight. You may be wondering what the problem is, and TikTokers has an amazing answer.

TikToker “Something suspicious” @seatrick He added in the viral video that “anyone who has ever tried to knit or crochet will be suffocating at that price.” It turns out that this protective piece will give you $35 back. Sounds like a deal? As @seatrick argues, the low price hides something even more sinister. Obviously, industrial machines cannot replicate such delicate patterns.

Meanwhile, another tick-talker @MattRose1312, so calculated the time it takes to knit a sweater, which is an obvious red flag of human labor. All the claims pile up and you can see just how wicked fast fashion can be.
