The band is at a right angle to the body of the hat.
You can work the top/slouchy part from any pattern you have found. Knit a separate band piece (just a stockinette cable on garter stitch background with what looks like crochet edging).
Seam the two pieces together, or work one from the other (i.e. pick-up sts).
