What Is DK Yarn?

DK yarn is a light weight yarn. The yarn weight is basically a measured of how thick or thin the yarn is. DK yarn is also known as double knitting, light worsted, light, 8 ply, or simply weight 3 yarn. The yarn usually calls for a 4mm crochet hook but this can differ between crochet patterns. DK yarn can come in many different fibers including acrylic, cotton and wool.
