Looks like an entrelac pattern to me. Entrelac looks much more complicated than it is. It it made up of short rows and picked up stitches.

Here are a couple of links that might help:

Here's a hat pattern. I'm not sure it's what you are looking for it's all I could find:

I agree, it's got a deep ribbed cuff, then the body of it is done in entrelac.

I did a small jumper in entrelac (didn't know it was called that though!).

Go slow to start with, you'll think its not worth the bother, you spend the whole time turning round to go the other way. But once you get going its good fun, and it looks so cool once its done.

If you're a new knitter, it might be worth finding a friend to sit with you and read the next bit of the pattern as you do it, it helps stop you getting lost. Or get a highlighter pen and cross off each bit as you go along.

Good luck

It turns out some really cool looking stuff when done in a selfstriping yarn, or different colors.
