Double Knit, also known as DK yarn is one of the most popular yarn weight choices. Double knitting wool falls somewhere between sport weight and worsted weight wools and is perfect for double kitting, hence the name. As a rule DK yarns are medium to lightweight, falling roughly in the centre. As such DK tends to be the best choice for all sorts of patterns including hats, sweaters, scarves and baby clothing.
Recommended needles: 4mm
