When I looked at the pictures my 1st thought was 'that's crochet', but when I saw the crown I came to the conclusion that it was 1x1 rib so the hat had to be knitted.
But now I've watched the video I revised my opinion and now think it is crochet.
I don't crochet, but my mum and sister knit and crochet, and this is the 1st time I've seen a crochet stitch that look so much like knitting.
