This pattern, when written out, seems a lot more complicated than it actually is.  All you need to remember is 26 MC, 8 CC.  You move from increase to decrease in the middle of the third green stripe.  The hood is worked in the same increase pattern as the body, you just BO on the 8th row of the stripe. 

Of course if you’re doing a solid color, you’ve got even less to worry about.
