Can I use DK for an Aran pattern


Recommended Posts

Hey! 

 

I'm in a little bit of a pickle. I found a pattern online and it said to use worsted weight wool. it linked the bran and I can't get it here in the UK and I thought stupidly worsted weight was the same as DK. (don't ask why) so I bought some DK wool, went to do the tension and it wasn't working so I asked my FB group and they said its because of the wool weight. 

 

Is there anyway I can use a DK with this Worsted weight pattern?

I can get the aran wool in its just I was looking forward to starting this pattern tonight and now I can't.

 

Any help is appreciated ❤️

Arian is a worsted weight yarn or size 4.  DK is a light weight yarn, or a size 3.  You may have to use a larger hook to get the gague you need, but it is not the same.

Depending on what you are making....  I've found worsted weight wool to seem more like dk acrylic.  Can you double up the dk wool yarn?  Again, if gauge is important in what you are making then making sure your yarn meets gauge is important.
