Okay, I feel really silly posting a picture of lindsay lohan- but I LOVE her hat and I would love to knit one. What stitch is that behind the ribbing?? Does anyone know of a similar pattern? Or any clues as to how I could make this?

It's really hard to tell, but maybe bobble stitch?

It's like crack, only with yarn.

It is the trinity/popcorn stitch. There was a thread on her awhile back about this hat, but i can't find it at the moment. Do a search for Starlet (that's what she named it) under the Completed Projects board and you should see a less slouchy version with a tute, as well.

crocheting bobbles is MUCH easier than knitting them, as is crocheting a hat in the round ((you start from the crown and work downwards, generally)) and when you get to where you want the ribbing to be, you make a loop as if to do another crochet stitch and instead of working it with your hook just put it on a circular knitting needle, i actually just made a hat in that style, but no pretty texture work on it, so a general outline would be to

chain 4, slipstitch to join
row 1 -- 10 sc or dc into ring ((depending on how dense you want the hat, ww yarn and dc with a 5-6 mm hook makes a loose drapey fabric))((10 stitches))
row 2 -- 2 sc or dc whatever youve chosen to use in each stitch, but if you want to do a bobble stitch pattern, work one stitch, and then one bobble into the same stitch you worked the first stitch in, and repeat in each stitch to the end((20 sts))
row 3 -- *1 #c, 2 #c in the next stitch, repeat from * around,  working a bobble in the first stitch of the increases((30 sts))
row 4 -- *2 #c, 2 #c in the next stitch, repeat from * around,  working a bobble in the first of the two separate stitchs and the first of the increase stitches also((40 sts))
row 5 -- *3 #c, 2 #c in the next stitch, repeat from * around,  working a bobble in the center((second)) of the separate stitches and the first of the increase stitches also((50 sts))
row 6 -- *4 #c, 2 #c in the next stitch, repeat from * around,  working a bobble in the first and thirda of the separate stitchs and the first of the increase stitches also((60 sts))
row 7 -- *9 #c, 2 #c in the next stitch, repeat from * around,  working a bobble in the second, fourth, sixth and eighth of the individual stitches and the first of the inceases stitches also((65 sts))
row 8 -- *10 #c, 2 #c in the next stitch, repeat from * around,  working a bobble in the first, third, fifth, seventh and ninth individual stitches, an the first of the increase stitches also((70 sts))
rows 9 and beyond -- *#c 2, work 1 bobble in the next stitch, #c , repeat from * to end for all odd numbered rows
rows 10 and beyond -- *#c 1, work 1 bobble in the next stitch, #c 1, work 1 bobble in the next stitch, #c 1, repeat from * to end for all even numbered rows

when you have between 20 and 25 rows if working in double crochet, between 30 and 40 rows in single crochet your hat should be long enough to be considderable slouchy, make it longer if you chose though, try it on before you pick up loops to knit your ribbing.

using about a size US8--16" circular needle pick up one knit stitch for every crochet stitch that you worked on the previous row, if you want to put a ribbon into your hat for decoration on the first knitted row before you begin ribbing *k2tog, yo, repeat from * to end to creat an eyelet row and then for 5-10 rows after that just do a k1,p1 ribbing pattern for all rows, or change it up if you want to, bind off VERY loosely, i like the slip stitch bind off method ((similar to a crocheted bind off, but no hook needed, just slip your first stitch from left to right needle, slip a second stitch the same way, and pass the first slipped stitch over, now do it again by slipping a 3rd stitch and lifting the prior stitch that you just passed over, over the stitch you just slipped)) if youre going to use this type of bindoff, use a needle between sizes US11 and US15 for maximum give.

i have not tested this pattern, i just came up with it as i was typing this, i have made hats in this style before, both knitted and crocheted, if you have any quetions, please feel free to post here or PM me directly.

sorry for such a long post and hijacking your thread.

Is that the same hat posted here?  She also posted a link to the instructions.

It's definitely a knitted bobble.  I made one of these bobble baby hats a couple years ago:
