Does any know this technique?
Hi. Does anyone know what technique is used in the first few rows of this hat? http://img0.etsystatic.com/002/0/672...69138_lfn4.jpg Also are there any videos or websites that can show me how to do this technique that you're aware of? I really love how it looks and I want to use it to make some accessories.

That is a puzzler. It's knit sideways, of course. The long slanted sts almost look like two strands of yarn were used to embroider along a conlumn of sts. It's a great look.

It looks to me like a round of reverse sc was worked a few stitches in from the side edge with 2 strands of yarn, and then another round of reverse sc was worked on the side edge itself.

Bridge,

My LYS gave me a copy of Vogue Knitting 2012 today, and it has a hat almost identical to your pictured hat. It's pattern 30, if you have access to a copy for written directions.The stitch it uses is defined in the pattern as w2(wrapped stitch), not to be confused with the wrap in short rows. Found that out the hard way trying to find a video for it.This may be the stitch you're looking for!

I'd give you the link, but I'm a techno-idiot on my iPad. If you google "w2 wrapped stitch" the 4th link down should be Getting Started: Wrapped Stitches with Eunny Jang. In the video it's the last one she demonstrates. Stacking the w2s should look like the stitch you asked about. Oh! If you use Eunny's stitch, just wrap 2 stitches...

That looks similar enough that when I saw it I remembered this thread.

Thanks, GG. That stitch pattern just begs to be tried on the needles.
