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 :teehee:

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

Definitely looks like crochet to me!

I think it’s crocheted… :think:

This one has a similar texture…


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:

[B][U]Crochet[/U][/B]: 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.

And a thread I started, [B][U][COLOR=“blue”]“Crochet Stitches, are Variations Allowed?”[/COLOR][/U][/B] where I learned the name of the Herringbone-HDC stitch from kkatt82.

definetly crochet i do both and it doesn’t look like knitting at all

I’m pretty sure that’s crochet.

[COLOR=“Magenta”][/COLOR]That is a for sure crochet.LOL:teehee:

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

[COLOR=“Blue”]so I turned it around for another look…[/color]

[COLOR=“Blue”]and I an convinced it is crocheted and uses the half double crochet stitch.


… so I turned it around for another look.

My guess is that it’s crocheted.

I agree. It would be very fast to make.

Definitely crochet.
