Frilly-Edged Wrap

I recently finished this wrap from Cozy Crochet. If I'm being totally honest, I have to admit I don't like the patterns in this book much. Kind of uninspired. I have always wanted to make this project, however. It's shown draped around a woman's shoulders, hanging softly. The author recommends using Blue Sky Alpacas' Alpaca and Silk. I used my standard sport weight acrylic yarn, which definitely wasn't the best choice. It looks fine, but it doesn't drape at all. But, if you used blue sky alpaca, this single project would cost nearly $200! That's just crazy.
