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.
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.
