hood-making

I'm knitting a cardigan -- not from a pattern, just a super simple top-down raglan -- but I want to give it a hood & I've never made a hood. So: what's your favourite hood-making method? Make afterwards and sew on? Graft on? Two pieces and sew? One piece and shape? Experiences and tips would be great!

If it makes a difference to you, the yarn is a chunky, fuzzy wool-acrylic blend frogged from a giant, ugly Salvation Army sweater ($3 -- makes a poor college student happy!). I haven't started it yet but I'll be using 11s or 13s, depending on which swatch looks prettier.
