I would really love and be grateful if someone can do a tutorial on how to draft a pattern for a hoodie (really just the hood part). I’m not capable of drafting such patterns on my own and was wondering if someone who had the skill to do so would be able to give instructions as to how to do so.

    why not take the pattern from an already made hoodie hood. most hoods have a center seam, to allow for some shaping.

    take the hood that you want to copy, and fold it so that you get a profile (side shot) of the hood. carefully trace around it on some paper (copy paper taped together, butcher’s paper, or even a paper bag cut open), then gently lift the sweater out of the way to get the bottom. smooth out the lines, then add seam allowances (5/8th of an inch is the norm, but you can add as much as you want). one thing that you will want to check is what the bottom of the hood measures. the bottom of the hood should measure at least the neck opening of where you want to put it (you can have a small overlap if you want).

    definitely do a test out of some cheap fabric first to make sure it turns out the way that you want before you cut into good fabric.

    hope this helps!

    If you’ll google hood pattern there are several sites that have them drawn. I did this for my stepson’s Halloween costume.
