It's been an interesting journey and a learning experience with this hooded sweater dress. I used a self striping yarn for this project, which my husband picked out because he liked the colors. It wasn't until I was about 6 inches into the dress part that it actually hit me, this is self striping yarn.. how am I going to match up the stripes on the sleeves and hood? I tried to match everything up as best I could. I also ran out of the striped yarn when I got to the top of the hood, so I used left over black yarn, I might add a pocket to the front in all black to kinda tie it all together. The colors look a little dark in these pictures because I just washed the sweater in my tub, it's still drying but I couldn't wait to post the pics.

If anyone is interested, this is the pattern I used:

looks nice a cozy, the colours look really nice.

You did a great job matching the self striping yarn, that can be an absolute pain.

Inspiration without application is moot.

I love the shape and how you took the time to match the stripes. That is not easy to do, good work.
