Is it Knit Crochet Hat by Oombawka Designs 11 True Crochet Stockinette:  The Waistcoat StitchI have had the privilege of testing this lovely Is it Knit? Crochet Hat pattern for Rhondda from Oombawka Design.  And it’s easy to see where she got the name from.  The particular stitch she uses yields a true stockinette finish.  Is that impressive?  YES!  I think every crocheter in the world has tried, at some point, to find a crochet stockinette stitch.  And I am first among them.  Stockinette is my favourite stitch ever, but I don’t knit (much) and am always hunting for the “look”, but with a hook, if you see what I mean.

And if the idea of a true crochet stockinette stitch excites you as much as it does me, you’re in luck, because Rhondda has done a lovely tutorial for the Waistcoat Stitch.  But more about that in a minute.

Getting back to the Is it Knit? Crochet Hat first…

It it knit Hat True Crochet Stockinette:  The Waistcoat StitchMy favourite part of the Is it Knit? Crochet Hat is the beautiful spiral (pinwheel) effect on the crown.  I kept flipping the hat over as I was working so that I could take another peek at it.  It reminds me of one of those spirals they used to show on cartoons when they were trying to hypnotize someone.

The hat itself is lovely and dense without being thick or rigid and the stockinette ribbing rounds it off beautifully.  This is such a simple, stylish design that it doesn’t need any embellishments.

You can find the pattern for the Is It Knit? Crochet Hat in Rhondda’s Ravelry Store.

And while you are there, have a little look around.  She also has some free patterns, my favourite of which has to be this Not ANOTHER Owl Hat.

    I saw Rhondda’s post with the waistcoat stitch, and immediately saved it, as I’m determined to learn it – as soon as I’ve finished off a few of my WIP’s! :)

    I love the idea of getting all the flair of the stockinette stitch, but from my crochet hook – it’s a brilliant pattern :)

  3. Dedri – you are the sweetest! Thank you so much for such a lovely post :) I’m honoured that you tested for me :) thank you for your kind words! Rhondda
