I want to make this hat...

...or at least something close, but I'm having trouble finding an adaptable pattern. And I have no idea how to get the brim to swoop like it does in the photo.

I like the brim a lot, but I don't know how to make it or how it will hold it's shape (I'm almost tempted to buy one just to figure it out). Any suggestions/help please?

(huzzah for my first post)

It looks like you could do

It looks like you could do it with short rows - like shaping a shawl collar.
