I am completely in love with Crochetme's privavcy wrap:

It calls for a sportweight chenille, which I am having trouble finding. Does anyone know any good brands of sportweight chenille? Would it ruin things to use worsted weight chenille?

This would be my first real crochet project other than little square samplers, but I must have this:  it so beautiful!

 I heard chenille is quite unforgiving..

So any tips would be welcoming- working with chenille, good brands of it etc...

Switching to ww would probably throw the gauge off and make the final wrap a different size than the pattern, unless you adjust for the larger yarn/hook.  I think Bernat makes a sport weight chenille, and if you do a search on eBay there will probably be a thousand different colors of chenille available in sport. 

One thing I'd suggest is picking up some Fray-Check to dot on the ends of the chenille yarn because the fraying and all the fluff coming off it can make you nuts.

Cool- thanks for the tips.  I did a search on ebay and the results were just overwhelming- I didn't know where to start.  I'll take a look for Bernat chenille.

I am thinking of making this wrap for a mother to be, but I am thinking - cotton or cotton blend??? washable . . . baby . . . I have not yet decided. Good luck.
