I saw a guy from my school wearing this hat.  How amazing right?



I've been trying to find a way to duplicate the stitch in crochet, but so far, nothing. Has anyone seen a similar pattern/stitch, or have any clues how to pull it off?

Thank you!  Grin

To be honest, it looks like they started out with a circle and then made cables coming out from it kind of like an octopus' tentacles and then kind of weaved them together and made the band. At least, that's what it looks like to me. If i have some time, I'll play around with the idea. Maybe someone a little more talented than me will look at it and instantly be able to make up a pattern for you lol

Now, I'm not a knitter, and I've never used a nifty knitter before, but I would think that it would be somewhat easy to make one using the Nifty Knitter. I mean, it's worth a shot....but like I said, I've never used one either..

Actually, after staring at it for a while, it might actually be knit and not crochet. Cuz also thinking about it, if they did what i originally thought, i dont know how it would form that shape on its own without the increases in most crocheted hats. I'm not really a knitter, but it could be something like the six stitch cable here http://www.knitting.co.nz/site/page_affix/toaffix_learntoknit8/

Honestly I think it looks like I-cords. I think if you could find someway to start the top, then make Icords and do like DesignVigilante  said, I would think it would work.

This is most assuredly knitting and it looks exactly like the stitch used for the Braided Mischief scarf by Teva Durham in the Scarf Style book.  It's called the braided cable.  Since you were asking for a crochet stitch I'm not sure how helpful that is Smiley  I also think, looking at the direction of the stitches that it was knit from the bottom up.  Maybe if you don't know how to knit this would be a good reason to learn, hehe, or maybe someone knows of a crochet stitch that looks enough like it for your purposes.  Cheesy

Here's the "crochet i-cord" from crochetme.com: http://crochetme.com/tips/i-cord-crochet-way

Also, you might look into the basketweave stitch for a sort of similar effect in crochet.

I would suggest going to a store like REI to see if you can look at the hat in person.  Often it's easier to figure out something if it's in front of you.  If you can determine whether it's a solid piece or individual strands that will be a good starting point.
