My second pattern! So as soon as I'd finished my Riverbanks, Neala decided she wanted one her self. Which brought out my creative skills again! Well I can't help it lol I do have another pattern in the works but that will have to wait!
So I give you....

You will need:
100g Sirdar Click Chunky in Bloom
4.5mm 24inch circs (yes I know this is small for the yarn, it give a nice dense fabric and is actually quite a nice feel!)
1 Stitch marker
Spare circ for grafting
4.5mm Crochet hook (optional)
Gauge er... well I tend to knit loose, so if you are a tight knitter go up a needle size lol
Cast on 80 stitches, place marker, join in the round, careful not to twist
Row 1 Knit
Row 2 Purl
Row 3 K2tog 3 times, K1 (YO K1) 6 times, K2tog 3 times, K1
Row 4 Knit
Repeat these 4 rows twice more (3 times in total)
Knit until piece measure 5inches from the cast on (from the bottom of a wave if you catch my drift lol)
Cast off 24 stitches and knit to the end of the row
You'll now be working the piece flat
Row 1 K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, purl to last 5 stitches, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1
Row 2 K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, knit to last 5 stitches, K1 P1, K1, P1, K1
Repeat these two rows until the piece measures 14inches in total from cast on edge
Place 28 stitches on a spare circ and graft the two sides together using Kitchener stitch
Weave in your ends and you are done!
For the sake of looking neat, on the cast off edge, I did two rows of double crochet (american single) with a 4.5 hook, to stop the edge from curling over and used a couple of stitches to attach it to the sides of the hood but this is entirely optional and purely for aesthetic reasons, if you don't mind the curling edge then leave it!
If there are any problems in the pattern or you have any questions, give me a shout and I'll do my best to sort it out!
Hope you enjoy the pattern!
