What's a DK weight yarn? + DK vs Sport weight yarns

DK weight yarns are slightly heavier than sport weight yarns—they are called DK because they were created for doubleknit knitting or using two strands at once, especially in intarsia type knitting. DK weight yarns are wonderful for accessories like shawls and wraps and can be combined color-wise to make up a worsted weight yarn.

DK Weight yarns are really mostly interchangeable with sport weight. Sport is slightly thinner in some cases, but so much depends upon the type of yarn (many DK weights bloom and become more of a light worsted—how's that for confusing!). But, pretty much count on a dk and a sport weight to be swappable.
