My Crocheted Toque Hat Pattern

I made a lovely hat, shaped like a toque, but have no picture of it to post here.  However, the shape of it is much like this classy little number:

And mine fits a lot like this one, too.
 
Anyway, I like the pattern so much that I plan to make more of them in the future, so here it is:
 
I used two strands of worsted weight wool, for bulk, and a size "K" crochet hook.  It worked up very fast, and I like the earthy-woodsy combination of brown and green wools in mine.  I sparked it up with a lovely shell stitch pattern, too.
 
Note:  Join every Round w/ slip stitches, but do not turn the work.  Beginning at crown (top center) of hat:
 
Round 1:  Chain 3, 6 sc in 3rd chain from hook (6 stitches total)
 
Round 2:  Chain 1, 2 sc in each stitch (increasing to 12 stitches total)
 
Round 3:  Chain 1,
 
* 1 sc in first stitch of previous round, 3 dc (shell) in next stitch *
 
repeat for a total of six 3-dc shells (increasing to 24 stitches)
 
Round 4:  Chain 3 (counts as first dc of shell)
 
* make shell of 5 dc in first (sc) stitch of previous row, 1 sc in top center dc of following shell *
 
repeat for a total of six 5-dc shells (increasing to 36 stitches)
 
Round 5:  Slip to center of shell from previous row, chain 1,
 
* 1 sc in top of shell, in next sc st make a shell of 7 dcs this time *
 
repeat for a total of six 7-dc shells (increasing to 48 stitches)
 
Round 6:  Chain 3 (counts as 1 dc in top of sc from previous round),
 
* 1 hdc in next st, 1 sc in each of next 5 sts, 1 hdc in next st, 1 dc in sc st of previous round, 1 hdc in next st *
 
repeat around.  Join in top of ch-3 (the first dc stitch of that round), for a total of 48 sts
 
Round 7:  Chain 1, 2 sc (increase) in top of same ch-3 stitch that you just joined from the previous round,
 
* 1 sc in each of the next 3 sts, 2 sc in the 4th st, 1 sc in each of the next 3 sts, 2 sc in next dc of the previous round, 1 sc in each of the next 3 sts *
 
repeat around (increasing 12 stitches evenly in the round for a total of 60 stitches)
 
Round 8:  Chain 1, 1 sc in first st of previous round, skip 1 stitch, 3 dc (shell) in next st, skip 1 stitch,
 
* 1 sc in next st, skip 1 stitch, 3 dc (shell) in next st, skip 1 st *
 
repeat around and join to first sc of previous round (fifteen 3-dc shells; 60 stitches total)
 
Round 9:  Chain 3 (counts as first dc of first shell), make a 5-dc shell in the first sc of previous round, 1 sc in top center of next shell of previous round,
 
* make a 5-dc shell in next sc st, 1 sc in top center of next shell *
 
repeat around and join to the top chain of the ch-3 at the beginning of the round (fifteen 5-dc shells; 90 stitches total)
 
Round 10:  Slip stitch to center of beginning shell of previous round, chain 1, 1 sc in top of that same first shell, make a 7-dc shell in next sc st of previous round,
 
*1 sc in top center of next shell, make a 7-dc shell in next sc st *
 
repeat around and join to the first sc of the round (fifteen 7-dc shells; 120 stitches total)
 
Round 11:  Make a round of 5-dc shells this time (decreasing to 90 stitches)
 
Round 12:  Make a round of 3-dc shells this time (decreasing to 60 stitches)
 
Rounds 13-17:  Make 5 more rounds of 3-dc shells (maintaining 60 stitches each round)
 
Round 18:  1 sc in each stitch, working every 9th & 10th stitch together as one (decreasing 6 stitches evenly around, for a total of 54 stitches)
 
Rounds 19 & 20:  1 sc in each stitch (54 stitches)
 
Round 21:  Slip stitch in every sc stitch of previous round (54 stitches); join and finish
