DK Weight

DK Weight

DK weight yarn is a bit lighter than the mainstream worsted weight yarn, and is fabulous for projects like cardigans, sweaters, hats, scarves, kids’ clothing…you name it!

Yarn weight refers to the thickness of yarn used by knitters, weavers, crocheters and other fiber artists. Changing yarn weight or needle size can have a significant impact on the finished project, so standardized systems have been spread about, as well as conversion systems for regional standards (especially needle sizes).Yarn weight is important in achieving the correct gauge or tension for a particular project and can help with yarn substitution. The Craft Yarn Council of America has developed a system that seeks to standardize the labeled weights of yarn. Most yarns state their weight on the ball band. Some brands use a standardized numbering system that uses 7 ranges of relative thickness of yarn.

Appropriate for:
Needle sizes US 5 to 7
Crochet hook size 7 to I.
Approximately 21-24 stitches per 4" stockinette stitch
1000 to 1200 yards per pound
