Back and front are worked separately, then joined together using a 3-needle bind-off. Stitches are picked up around the neck opening, and the hood is worked in the round for several rounds before dividing for the opening. The hood is worked back and forth in rows to the shaped top, and the halves of the hood are joined using a 3-needle bind-off. Finally a ribbed edging is worked in the round for the hood opening.
