Hat Pattern Help

I was hoping some of you guys could help me locate a hat pattern with a gansey band. Ideally it would begin with a patterned gansey band, then be plain hat from there on up.

Thanks a million.

I wish I knew what a gansey band was.

A "Gansey" band would be a band in one or more of the traditional patterns used for 'gansey" sweaters; knit/purl designs, I believe some cables were used, but the knit/purl designs plus specific construction techniques distinguished the gansey from say an Aran.. or "fisherman" sweater.

For example - whitby moss is a traditional gansey pattern

two rows of k2p2 rib are alternated with two rows of stocking stitch

double whitby moss alternates 4 rows of 4 x 4 rib with two rows of stocking stitch.

MMario - I'm not divorced from reality - we're having a trial separation
