Di.Ve' Fiamma Subsitution help
I want to make this baby wrap, but I don't want to buy a special yarn. I also don't really like the thin & chunky yarns, I tend to like the consistancy of all one thickness.

Can I double up a light worsted like Caron SS and get the same result, or would that be too thick?

Any other suggestions for easily accessible yarns (such as from Hobby Lobby/Walmart/etc... I don't have a LYS).

Thanks

I saw that pattern and it's funny you should ask tonite..I just posted the Petit Chou pattern in the Pattern Central forum!

I love this little wrap, too. I'm not sure if the yarn is available any more or not to even check what the gauge was for sure. I think I would give it a try with a double strand or chunky type yarn and see how it works out. It may be a learning process.
