My Zac Hat

Just in case that anyone you know is obcessed with the Zac Brown Band or you wanna make it for yourself, here's my pattern:

Begin: ch 4, sl st to make a ring.

Rnd 1: ch 3, 9 dc in ring. sl st to 3rd ch.
Rnd 2: ch 3, dc in joining ch, 2 dc in each dc. sl st into joining ch.
Rnd 3: ch 3, dc in joining ch. *1 dc, 2 dc* all around. sl st into 3rd ch.
Rnd 4: ch 3, dc in joining ch. *dc in next 2 dc, 2 dc* all around. sl st into 3rd ch.
Rnd 5: ch 3, dc in joining ch. *dc in next 3 dc, 2 dc* all around. sl st into 3rd ch.
Rnd 6: ch 3, dc in joining ch. *dc in next 4 dc, 2 dc* all around. sl st into 3rd ch.
Rnd 7-12: ch 3,dc in each dc. sl st in 3rd ch.
Rnd 13: ch 3, dc in each dc. change to second color with sl st.
Rnd 14-16: Same as 7.
Rnd 17: ch 3, dc in each dc. sl st in 3rd ch and fasten off.

By the way, this one is kinda tight, so if you want it looser, just add one or two more beginning rounds. I wrote the pattern tight 'cause his hat looks sorta tight.

If you do make it, let me know! I wanna see it! =)
