Cool!  Thanks for all the great feedback.  I feel more confident in wearing it just the way I made it!  Thanks so much for all the great encouragement!

I would definitely leave it as is. I love the beads, AND the fact that in the winter when you're wearing a coat and don't have a need for a shrug, you can remove the pins and use it as a scarf! Now I wanna make one for myself! Smiley

It looks great, and quite unique. You can be sure no one else has a garment like this!

What stitch pattern did you use?

Wear it proudly! It's beautiful. When I first started knitting I made about 10 scarves that I would never wear in public. Now I wear everything I make, I figure I worked hard on it and knits are made to be worn Smiley

Thanks for all the awesome comments!  I'm headed to the movies today, where I always freeze, and now I think I'll take this with me. 

I searched and searched my patterns and finally found which one I used for this.  Luckily, it was a free pattern from Lionbrand.  I'm sure it can be found by searching "Lace poncho" at their website.  I'm not big on ponchos, especially ones that create a nice little point that seems to hang "right there."  But I loved the look of the chunky lace so I figured I would finish it into a shrug instead.  It's been awhile but I'm pretty sure I followed the pattern as is but then just folded it lengthwise to turn it into a shrug, and of course instead of sewing it up I used the beads and large safety pins.  Hope that helps!

And thanks again for the very encouraging feedback!  I just might make another one in a different color now!

Just wanted to second the comments about it looking like something you would buy in an expensive boutique. LOOKS AWESOME & EXPENSIVE! You will get people stopping you asking you where you bought it!
