Does anyone know what this kind of stitching is called? It looks sort of sideways.

That is a beautiful hat!  It looks like diagonally knit garter stitch to me, but I'm not sure how it would be done.

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

Diagonal, you're right! I changed the subject line. It's terrifically cute and I want to make it but I don't want to buy the kit because it's cashmere. Where there's a will to knit, there's a way. I've knit dishcloths diagonally but I don't think it would work for a hat.

Ever since I clicked on that picture I've become obsessed with trying to figure it out.  Must. Figure. Out. Diagonal. Hat.  Work. Does. Not. Matter.  Oh. No. Here. Comes. Boss.  (  Grin )

Ooo! My mother-in-law gave me some dishcloths that are similar to what you describe and I have been wanting to learn how to make them. Do you have a tutorial or pattern you would be willing to share?

Yeah! it's a puzzle!

For the diagonal dishcloth I started with 2 stitches then did a YO on the 2nd stitch and INC on the 2nd last stitch of each row... here's a pattern with better instructions, you can ignore the cable:

I know this isn't about the hat, but I really like that dishcloth, and I'm absolutely making it!

i really like that hat....
I was thinking though, since you know how to knit the dishcloth, then try knit a hat on straights and make it like a huge dishcloth and after it gets as long as you want it to be, just start decreasing every fifth stitch, then every fourth, etc, just like you'd make a simple hat on straights.

this may not make any sense...BUT.... maybe if  you cast on like for the dishcloth but only increase/decrease on one side so you are knitting a sideways triangle and instead of bringing the triangle to a point you could flatten it off a bit............I think i fried  my brain, maybe I actually need to put this on the needles and try it out and get back to you... hmm, now this is going to be stuck in my head too ...cute hat though and I have the perfect yarn for this...someone must have a solution..please please please!
