I love the third one. The stitch pattern is gorgeous! Yall think it's crocheted? I can crochet, but not really sure about coming up with a pattern. Hmm.

The second one is knit and the 3rd is crochet. Besides saying so in thier descriptions. the second is k1p1 rib.
The first one says it is knit, but I doubt it. Manufacturers do this more often than you think. The brim and top are single crochet and the band is like a granny square.
The khaki one is a chevron stitch, crochet through the back loop.

I just have to say singingllama...I have attempted to get into crochet, but my knitting won't let me.  You have inspired me to try and learn more so that I can recognized some of this stuff too.....let's just hope I can put down the sticks long enough to this time  Grin  Thanks!

Yeah I started knitting first. I just picked up crochet in July with the help of the SnB book. I could never figure out exactly where to stick the hook and I found the illustrations in this helped me best, especially the one with the "butt" of the stitch.
It depends on the texture I want out of the fabric. Knit has good drape and stretch, but it tends to take a little longer, but with a little less yarn. Crochet is good if you need something dense without much stretch such as a stuffed animal or a hat like these. It is also alot easier to do lace in crochet. Once you figure out where to stick the hook the rest comes easily.
