Definitely knit.  Some sort of entrelac.  Which just means that it is angled by adding stitches to one side and casting them off from the other.

I say this because perhaps you could accomplish the diagonal thingy with crochet in a similar manner?  I don't know.

Alternatively, you could learn to knit.  I was a lifelong crocheter but took up knitting.  I've only been knitting (and not continously--only finished a couple of things so far) for about a year and I've mastered entrelac already...

I've seen that hat in a store and was in awe myself. What it looks like to me is a stockinette stitch with about 6 or 8 sitches just done in strips and weaved together...possibly stitched to a band at the bottom and at the top, maybe the top would be tapered off?

It is a knit hat, so I'd suggest posting your question, with that great photo, to the knitters.  There are some real smarties over there who might be able to help with a knitting pattern.  Then you can enjoy learning to knit if you don't already.

You could do this with the knit stitch in tunisian making like a modified i-cord, wave, then on the bottom pick up stitches from each cord to form the ribbing portion

I'm definitely aware that it's a knit; I was looking for anyone who may have seen a stitch that would be a similar look in crochet  Undecided

There are some things that knitting does that crochet simply cannot, and vice-versa.  This is one of those instances.  I agree with the braided cable suggestion of the pp...it would be quite effective.  I think it would be easier to learn to knit it than to try and find a way to force crochet to do it.  Good luck!  I think it's an awesome hat!  It sort of reminds me of the ones the kids were wearing on "Kid Nation"

Here's a tutorial for entrelac crochet it appears that the hat is knit in a rib stitch and then knit in an entrelac stitchl. I'm not the best crocheter but I'm sure you can find a stitch comprable to the rib stitch and then figure it out from there.

I was thinking something like this

then do this to it

then do a rib around the bottom once they are all woven in the pattern you like
it's possible in crochet just a matter of figuring out the construction

sorry i cant be of more help to you in the crochet dept.

but what an awesome looking hat! looks really doable for a knitter. i think Bugaboo1's idea might work.

good luck.

-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

maybe if you start at the bottom, do a mock-rib stitch, then pick up sections of 3-4 stitches one at a time and do a DC stitch down the legnth, all around the hat (so it will look like an upside-down jellyfish), then weave them.  at the end, you could just bunch them together and tie them off so it would make a kind of pom-pom at the top.  and that is the best i can come up with.  good luck!
