Worsted weight yarn is the most commonly used weight of yarn, slightly thicker than DK weight and thinner than bulky yarn. Worsted weight yarn is a great choice for sweaters, hats, cowls, fingerless mitts, and more. Worsted yarn is suggested for projects with a knitting gauge of 4.5 stitches per inch on size 7-9 needles. Click on a yarn to see more color options.
