You want to hide the stitch then? Get a hold of a Ron Rollins DVD Making the Dutch Hood..
That will explain and show how to make that style of hood and stitch..

Cant see the pic mate. Ignore this if you are already doing it. Yor edges of the pattern should be cut at 90 degrees. Your awl should go midway through the thickness of the leather your using at a 45 degree angle. You then need to sew up the hood tight. I use the traditional cross stitch method. After the hood has been stretched onto the block concentrate on working the seams with a seam roller, awl handle or similar hard round object. Once the seams are flat push the lether across using the awl handle etc to cover any stitches that may still be visible. There shouldnt be any after the seams have been rolled but you do occasionally get them. If your still struggling just post on here or feel free to pm me.

Try 1.1mm-1.3mm,,Kangaroo or English kip from Le Prevo..That is what some are using,, there is a Great article in the International Falconer magazine by friend Steve Tait, that is what he uses, Issue 28..in fact one of the hoods pictured on the front page of the article the olive green/lizard hood is actually in my collection..
