I saw this beanie at billabongirls.com and I love it! But I'd love it even more if I made it haha  Grin

The site says it's knit, so I know I coulden't get the stitch to look the same, but I wonder if it's possible to be able to get that vertical-almost-swirl effect? I don't think it's possible, but I just thought I'd ask  Smiley

doesn't look like any knit I've ever seen, just for reference. sites often claim something they're selling is crochet when it's knit and vice-versa, or even call it both in one complimentary blurb.


just, you know, my nickel.

it's a cool pattern, anyway, and I'd like to see what people make of it. Personally, it looks like they chained like fifty and double crocheted in each ch (and bound off) per stripe, then seamed each stripe together.  Or maybe turned and went back along the dc for each stripe and just used some artful seaming to make it look so swirled.
good luck finding out how this works; i'm sure someone else could see it better than I can.

Cute hat.  I agree with Frozen_peas in that it is crocheted (does not look knit at all!).  There is a way to crochet a spiral/swirl - here are instructions:
http://www.medidit.com/instrct/spiral.htm  I've never done it, but it doesn't look too terrible.  Just practice first with crappy yarn until you get the hang of it.  Good luck!

I think that this hat in double crochet would be similar, if not exactly the same.
