My friend has this hat and I'm not experienced enough to know if it's knit or crochet. I'm thinking it's knit, but would like several second opinions :teehee:

If it's knit, does anyone recognize a pattern similar to it?

That does not look like knit so I think it is crochet, but I've now seen some knit stitches that don't look knit. :think:

Crochet: I'd say it is a "woven stitch" or "granite stitch" pattern. I am uncertain as to what stitches was used; it doesn't look like SC nor like DC (US definitions) so I would guess HDC (half-double crochet -US) or perhaps even a haringbone half double crochet.

Woven Stitch (http://www.knitcrochetpatterns.com/wovenstitch.html)

Granite Stitch (http://www.crochetme.com/love-scarf/)

Haringbone half-double crochet (http://www.crochetcabana.com/stitches/stitches-Hhdc.htm)

And a thread I started, "Crochet Stitches, are Variations Allowed?" (http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/archive/index.php/t-70267.html) where I learned the name of the Herringbone-HDC stitch from kkatt82.

It sure looks like crochet to me. It looks like it could be a version of linen stitch.

I am convinced it is crocheted and uses the half double crochet stitch.

I agree. It would be very fast to make.
