This is really cool, Can you post a pic of the back? Looks like it would stay in place better than a shawl.

Yes! yes! More pics please! Oh this is so amazing! I am gushing because I have countless sweater-like shawl-ish things that cannot really be worn because they don't fit under a warm coat...yours however provides warmth without being bulky! This imo rocks.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

aw thanks!
so to answer your questions - the back basically looks like the front, except the patterns are flipped.  It is pretty much two loops that are connected.
Think of it more like a sleeveless sweater or a cape than a shawl - it is meant to be worn over clothes, but doesn't have sleeves.
I don't really know that you can wear it any other way - I suppose you can put it around your neck but it would have so much extra fabric hanging.
