The vintage patterns I looked at involved working separate rectangles for hood and scarf, but this one uses a neat cast on method more commonly used for toe up socks to begin the hood and scarf together at the centre back. The scarf is biased which causes it to flare outward at the back neck, gives definition to the hood, and creates pointed ends. All of the stitch patterns used are variations on the same simple but effective technique where slipping stitches leaves strands of yarn across the right side that are later picked up.
