Is it possible to knit a hood with the short row shaping down the center back rather than on top? Just musing!

:thinking: I watched the short row video and I can't see why it wouldn't work for a hood. And I just had a thought too. What about using the sock-heel shaping to get a hood too. Has anyone seen that. I having gotten to the hood part of sweater yet, so I don't know any other ways to make a hood other than the two needle bindoff that I used for my Lionbrand hoody.

Im kinda making this pattern up as I go along. I can not see why using the same techniques for sock heels would not work on a hood. It would look nice too. I guess you would just have to play with the math between what you need in the front and how wide your neck is.
Playing around with this is a good rainy day project no?
