DK weight yarns are the perfect weight for sweaters and accessories. If you’re planning to make socks, make sure to choose a yarn with nylon for strength.
Recommended needle size: 3.25mm - 4.5mm depending on the fabric you require for your project.
For socks: 3.0mm - 3.25mm
For sweaters: 3.25mm - 4.0mm
For shawls: 4.5mm - 5mm (creates a looser fabric with more drape)
