If it is crochet and it is handmade, the Tunisian looks like it might be right. I think you may have found it, Judy.
I wish the OP would let us know if it's been IDed or is there more info that might help.

Yeah, it just doesn't have the look of hand work work to me.

It looks similar to a project I just finished. This is a winter headband. The stitch is the Camel Stitch. It's supposed to be done in single crochet, but I did mine in a half double. Yours might be a Camel Stitch done in double or treble crochet.

I found a better photo! Definitely looks like the post-type of crochet. Do you think it's alternating post front and then back? Thank you!!

I don't think it looks like alternating fp and bp but the only way to tell for sure would be to get your hook and yarn out and give it a test drive IMHO.

got it! yes, it's just post front double crochet, and since you turn the work for each new row, each side looks like alternative front and back post. thanks so much everyone!
