I always love to see your work, David! This is a marvelous hoodie! You look great!

I agree, hoods can be very pesky. I've knit many a hood by the directions, and they turn out to be awful.
I've started NOT to rely on the pattern directions.

One of my by-the-book hoods one time made me look like a monk or friar. Not good. I reworked that doggone hood so many times I went nearly insane. And of course, the hoods are almost the last thing to be knit, so you're already invested in the garment!

I knit one garment with a hood, with a different hood, without a hood, with a collar, with a different collar....etc. Get the picture? And that coat is still sitting in pieces, unseamed for the second time. Gah!
