ALSO KNOWN AS: Light worsted NEE­DLE SIZE: 4mm TYP­I­CAL TEN­SION: 22 sts and 30 rows AV­ER­AGE ME­TRES PER 50G: 120m ONE BALL PROJECTS (50G): Hats, wrist­warm­ers The low down: Usu­ally the most re­quested weight of yarn, DK is great for light gar­ments and ac­ces­sories. Look at the pat­tern ar­chives of big brands like King Cole and you’ll find huge num­bers of projects de­signed for DK. How­ever, if you’re new to knit­ting, a long sleeved gar­ment in DK weight can feel like a bit of a slog, so save it for sum­mer t shirts or short sleeved tops. One ball of DK yarn is just enough for a pair of wrist­warm­ers, a beanie, sim­ple knit­ted jew­ellery a handy coin purse.
