Is this Knit or Crochet
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

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

Looks like HDC Woven Stitch (Crochet)
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.

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

Granite Stitch

Haringbone half-double crochet

And a thread I started, "Crochet Stitches, are Variations Allowed?" 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.
