Anyone seen this pattern?

Hey all,
I was surfing today and found this hat at Burberry.com. They want $180.00 for it! It's really interesting and I wonder if anyone has seen a pattern like this before. Through the link you can zoom in and get a better look.

Looks like Entrelac to me & I've never been clever enough to master it.

Hi there, I would agree with Martin. As far as the pattern you may have to try and work something out for yourself.

Have been knitting for years. I knit continually then will try another craft, but will return to the needles.

Should have had a better look it is an enterlac but it is alternating sections of stocking stitch and reverse stocking stitch.

I think it is actually cabled - though possibly sections knit seperately and braided.

It looks to me as though it has been knit in sections, then braided and brought together on the crown.

I think you are right - and it's about 54 stitches around - alternating 5 k w/7 purl after the 1 x1 rib at the brim; maybe 50 rows total. about an hour and a half's work, tops I would think.
wish I could get that kind of money for knitting.

IThe closest I have seen to this hat is this Entrelac Pattern, http://www.minidata.co.nz/major/freepatt/patt02.htm with a bit of adjustment I'm sure it could look very similar.

Thanks all for your input and comments. Maybe Entrelac is my next technique to learn.

If you zoomn in on the display page for the hat you can see that it is NOT entrelac - though I'm sure entrelac could be used to make a similar item. The hat pictured is either cabled or worked in sections, braided and then grafted. I'm willing to bet cabled.
