Is it worked in the round? What is it? Can you link to the pattern or give it's name, where you got it?

Per the pattern, is it worked in the round? What's the name of the pattern, we might be able to find it online.

If it's worked in the round, it may be more problem to convert it than to use circulars.

You may need an extra stitch or two for seaming, the even rows in the pattern would have to be worked in the opposite stitches and possibly from the end of the row to the beginning unless it's just a simple rib or stockinette stitch. If you give us more information, we can help you a lot easier.

The RH and Lion websites have lots of hat patterns on each one and wouldn't have the same ones. We can't access 'apps' so that doesn't explain much - what's the actual name of it?

With a cable pattern, the stitches cross on the RS rows, and the rest of the rows are similar to ribbing usually.
