I didn't want to hijack the pumpkin hat threads, but you can do the curling vine effect in both crochet and knit.<br><br>
For crochet, chain desired stitches, then, for second row, second chain from hook, do 2 sc in each chain across, then fasten off. You could do hdc, or dc if you wanted a thicker vine.<br><br>
For knitting, cast on desired stitches, for second row, knit into the front and back of every stitch. Third row, bind off.<br><br>
They have the same basic effect, but I think the crochet method is a little easier.

Ooh, thank you for giving a knitting version! I'm absolutely hopeless at crocheting... I know it's probably easy to learn but I've got a mental block <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I really wanted to be able to make this, thanks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/luxlove.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="throb">

On each stitch, there's a front and back post. Knit into the front post, as normal, and then before you slip it off the needle, you'll knit into the back post as well. There's a video to clarify on <a href="http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/basic_techniques/increase.php" target="_blank">www.knittinghelp.com</a>, in case I'm not explaining very well. Scroll about halfway down the page and on the right side, it's under Bar Increase knit1 f&b
