Double Knitting

Double knitting yarn (DK) is lighter weight than worsted and slightly thicker than fingering yarn. Originally it was used for double knitting with a nice color design on both sides. The “back side” would be in the reverse of the right side. Piano keys might be a good example with white and black keys for the sharps and flats. On the other side, it would be the opposite…black keys and white for sharps and flats. Use of DK yarn is used whenever a pattern might want that used depending on the gauge of the knitting and the size of finished product.
