Based on a classic construction design with a little bit of shaping for the crown. I added cables for a little bit of visual interest. This hood is perfect for any time of the year as a little of bit cushion under any helm you are wearing or as a plain outer layer to protect you from the elements. Just pick a yarn and go.
