DK Yarn (Double Knit)

      DK yarn, also known as double knitting yarn, is a lightweight yarn that is used in a variety of knitting and crochet projects. DK weight yarn is slightly lighter than worsted weight yarn, but heavier than sport weight yarn.

      DK is one of the most popular yarn weights (size 3) for creating sweaters, cardigans, baby garments, kidswear, accessories such as hats, mittens, scarves, and home decor items because the double knit yarn is versatile and easy to work with. DK yarn is also a good choice for those who are new to knitting or crochet, as the yarn is not too thin or too thick, and the finished project will have a nice drape. DK weight yarns are commonly knit on 4.00mm needles and hooks.

      When shopping for DK yarns, you can expect to find a wide range of colors, fibers (such as acrylic, cotton, bamboo, wool, alpaca, linen or even silk blends), and brands to choose from, so you can find the perfect yarn for your project.
