Hard to follow, but still a great design
I tried to make this pattern and got an uneven form. It was difficult to keep track of the instructions when the instruction would ask you to repeat rows, then give a new instruction within a row. What one am I supposed to follow? Here's an example:
"Row 9- Rep Row 7-56 sts" FOR 23 1/2 hat

Later on, more detailed instructed for Row 9...

"""All Sizes
Row 9 (11, 13, 15)
Ch 1, hdc blo across to last 4 sts, (blo dec) 2 times, turn--2 sts dec'd."

It is a great design, but there seems to be a mistake in the pattern, or the author was lazy and expects some guesswork from user on the instructions. I'm glad this was a crochet pattern over a cooking recipe.

The repeat row information is difficult to follow. If I do the pattern again, I'll take the time to transcribe the pattern instruction into something easier in order to keep track of which row I'm on. My results were very lopsided- long on the initial row, and considerably shorter on the end row. I was using some cheaper yarn, right weight, gauge, to practice the pattern before obtaining a better type. It was frustrating reading these instructions.
