You can make a shawl and then pick up stitches around the neckline and knit a hood, or you can look up hooded poncho patterns and split them up the front. At least, that is the way I interpret "hooded shawl". Does she mean one of those scarves with a hood in the center?

Here's a pretty one, but more of a hooded scarf than shawl, and not free:

I made the "Garter Stitch Balaclava" from this collection of free online Interweave Knits pattern:

http://www.interweaveknits.com/freepatterns/pdf/Scarves_Staff.pdf

I altered it a bit because I thought there was an error in the end shaping, but I'm not sure that I needed to.

If you are on Ravelry, you can search Patterns for "hooded shawl" and "hooded scarf" and get lots of ideas.

Have fun!

Here's another one to look at (I've got one partially done but it's on hold while I knock out a hat for Older Son hopefully done for Christmas); you might want to widen the scarf portion:

Thank you for such good pattern sources. I saved the IK staff article. Loads of good ideas there and also the heelhead scarf. I'm designing a hooded sweater for my granddaughter and was working on a way to knit the hood and then progress to a top down sweater. Although I haven't worked with it yet, that heelhead scarf looks perfect. At least the design of it does, I'll propably change the stitch patterns as it is the shaping that interests me.

Mmario has a pattern on his yahoo group (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MMarioKKnits/) that forms it's own hood. It's called Song of Zion, it's free, and there's a picture of it on the front page of his group.

Thank you all for the pattern ideas. I am going to let her look at them and tell me exactly what she wants. These are all great.

thanks and Happy New Year to everyone
