    I made this and it is a very clever design. It’s easy to do, because just changing the hook size creates the wonderful pattern, and the decreases are done by skipping stitches. Unfortunately, mine looks like a rasta hat. Hoping with some washing it might actually ‘slouch’ but I think if I made it again, I’d hoose a smaller hook, a different, less stiff yarn, and maybe leave out one of the rows of tripple crochet.
