When you want to add a knitted hood to a garment you pick up sts from the right side around the neck opening or knit the hood separate as in the video and sew it to the garment afterward. Work back and forth on needles until desired length of hood.
In this DROPS video we are showing how to knit the hood. We are working in stockinette with 3 sts in garter each side toward the face opening.
When the hood is finished, you bind off, fold double and sew from RS with stitches the same size as the knitted stitches. The seam will be invisible.
An alternative to bind off is to do a 3-needle bind off, or sew together the sides with kitchener sts, and you can find separate videos for that in our video library.
