That. Is. Fantastic!
How do you do hoods like that? I seem to only be good at drafting clothes for toys- every time i've gone pattern-less for a human it has... not worked out well. yeah, that'll do...

Looks great. I would wear it if I got it as a gift. I can legitimately say I'm inspired by your work. I've got some velour I was saving and I was scared to do a lot of this with it.

Very cute color combo and the pockets look rad.

I love it.  I would go with deep dark green with a lite green inside.  Like link from all the zelda games.  Or black and have the inside hood and pockets in deep purple.  Oh, that sounds cool.  Will you be adding a tut. soon?  So we can all make one too??? Huh

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

Hey, this is cool! I've never heard of or seen "Elvish hoodies" where I am in Canada. What a cool idea though! You can flaunt your LotR obsession in a flattering way!

I love the colours too.

Wow, thanks everyone!! Grin I gave it to my friend last weekend now and she loved it! It fit her so perfectly! I'm so happy because I was really worried that it would be too big. I'll add pics of her wearing it when I get home from work tomorrow Smiley

To answer some Q's:

Yes, it IS very soft and comfy! I'll probably make myself a couple of these, so I can wear one every day haha Smiley

@Spoox: The hood is really simple, just do a regular hood shape and then draw a straight line either from the top (or bottom) of it, the lenght of the hood, then a slanted line down (or up) to it so the ends meet. If that makes sense? Smiley I can draw a picture later...

@PixieSkull: Go for it! It's so great to wear!

@missmoppet: that's kinda what I was going for at first, but they didn't have any greens that matched :/ But black and purple (or black and red) would be great! You can do so many variations with the colors too, like the arms another color than the body etc.

I can try to draw a short tutorial for it when I have time soon. It's really easy to make the pattern actually.

When it's 1 am and you can see dancing elephants in the texture of your carpet, it's probably time to go to bed...

Better pics added!
I think I will wait making a tute until I make another shirt so I can take photos of the progress. Or does anyone want it right now?

Ah its cute! I've never seen that type of hood before (well, outside of fantasy movies) but I really like it!
Good job!

Fantastic! I've never been a fan of hoodies, but I'd definitely wear that. Especially with that fabric! (I have a secret love of velour and anything velvety. Tongue) I'd love to see that tutorial whenever you're ready to post one.

Never give your reasons, for your judgement will probably be right, but your reasons almost certainly will be wrong.
