Poll: Pointed vs. Rounded Hoods

Do you like pointy or round hoods?

I like a pointed hood. But, they can look, well, too pointy.

Since I'm writing a pattern for the hoodie pictured, I thought I'd ask my readers. So, to my few and cherished readers, please make your voices heard and take the poll to the right. Leave a comment if you need more room to expound.

I did a few decreases to make the hood a little less angular. I like the way it looks here. Still, I can't decide if a round hood might not be better. I could easily rip out a few rows and rework the top.

When I write that part of the pattern, I could include instructions for both a pointy and a round hood. Maybe that's the best solution.

I haven't really thought about this before! I think usually I prefer a round hood, but I actually really like the point on your hoodie and I don't think I'd want it to be changed! Along with the cables, the slight point seems to give it a somewhat elvish feel, which I like. :-)

I like the elfish (elfish, right, not Elvis-h?) feel, too. Sweaters that don't take themselves too seriously are a good thing!
