So I'm wanting to knit a hooded scarf (eventually, down the line), and I've found that not only am I really bad at, but I also really dislike seaming.  So I'm wondering if there's a way to knit a hood from neck to edge, using short row shaping?  It seems like it ought to be possible, and that it'd end up something like a calorimetry, but on a larger scale.  Anyone have an experience or input on this?  Otherwise I may just take a spare weekend and play with it...

Sure you could. I'd knit back & forth flat for a while, then treat it like a giant short-row heel.

alternatively, you could use a 3-needle bind off instead of seaming. Smiley

Fantastic, thank you!  I'd found a pattern that used a 3 needle bind off that's my backup.  It just seemed like something you could do with short rows, which, for some reason, I really enjoy doing.  Thanks again!
