What is Double Knit Weight (DK) yarn?

by ?

Question: What size yarn is double knit yarn? Is it like size 1 or 2 ,etc,? I am confused and I have a pattern that says to use double knit size yarn.



Hello Knitter,

Thank you for the question. Double knit yarn refers to yarn that has a gauge range of 22-24 sts per 4 inches (10 cm) or we can say that it's about 5.5 -6 sts/inch. It has slightly smaller gauge than worsted weight yarn and slightly larger gauge than sport weight yarn.

You can see type of yarns by weight summary on this page.

Thank you for visiting.
