How to crochet zebra stripes

I want to make a friend's baby a zebra stripe hat. I can't find a pattern like I want though. The only patterns I have found are just alternating white and black and I want something with more real looking zebra stripes. Anyone have any suggestions? I think I can play around with it and figure it our but I want to get it done before Christmas. TIA!

Red heart has a zebra colorway, I don't know how it would pool with crochet, but I know how it would pool with knit
