basically I want a pattern for a hood that is tight-fitting (won't fall down!)

something sort of like an adult sized version of these childrens balaclava hoods would work...

preferably using worsted, or better yet bulky yarn

There's an adult pattern for a balaclava at the V&A site: http://www.vam.ac.uk/collections/fashion/knitting/1940s/index.html

And a few in my bookmarks: http://del.icio.us/yclept/balaclava

If you have an A.C. Moore Craft store near you, they have displays for these in knitting and crocheting along with the yarn for the job- a pattons wool.  The purpose is actually helmet liners for the boys overseas.  Its a charity thing they are running, but the patterns are great, (they had examples), free,  and hopfully can be found in your area!
