This hood is worked in single crochet with a rib design. The ribbing makes it a little less bulky than solid sc would have been.
If someone wasn't worried about subzero blizzard conditions, then a half dc or full dc could be used for a couple of rows, to vary the design. Or, do part of it in a shell stitch, or popcorn stitch, etc. Basically it's something one can have fun with. If you don't like how something's working up, just rip it out and try something else.
I actually may do my next one in sections, doing a different stitch for each section, then just slst each section together. I still have a fair amount of scrap yarn to use up! (BG)
It could also be made up in a finer or more bulky yarn, depending on the style one wanted, how warm one wanted it to be, and what scrap yarn you have on hand!
This hood is worked up as one long tube (in a "spiral", no turning!).
18 to 20 inches is long enuf to cover my head & even have a little turned back as a cuff. It comes down to my shoulders to keep my neck warm (especially when shoveling snow while it's still snowing!) ;->
