I made this up a little while ago. It's based on Teva Durham's Fair Isle Hooded Capelet from her Loop-d-loop book. It's great for working in, and apparently also good for sneaking up on flamingos.
Instead of a fair isle trim I did a variation of a leaf trim - and I'm not entirely sure if that increase at the back of the neck is in the pattern! Once I had the gist of the shape I just kept knitting. Oh, and I knitted it on 2 needles and sewed it up at the front.
I can't remember what the wool is, other than that it's some sort of Aran weight wool blend. It's already been this and this, so I've had it for a while.
