Peony Shrug

I finished my Peony Shrug, formerly known as my Peony Stole, formerly known as The Crocus Bud Crocheted Shawl. I deviated quite a bit from the pattern.  The original pattern called for lace yarn with a 5.5 mm hook.  I decided that I wanted something a little warmer for my shoulders when reading on the couch.  So I crocheted it in worsted weight yarn (Stitch Nation Full o' Sheep in Peony color) and an 8.00 mm hook.  Additionally, I started this shrug with a Chainless Foundation (sc) and ended with a row of sc.  Once I got further along in the project, I decided that I liked it better as a shrug.  So I folded it in half, right sides together, and seamed on each end approx. 3" in.  Then I weaved in the ends and turned right side out.
The middle pic is a little blurry but you get the basic idea of the fit.  The last pic displays the pattern a little better.
