Can you use DK wool instead of 4 ply?
Can you use DK wool instead of 4 layers? If you use DK for a 4-ply pattern, it will be wider. So if the pattern says you need to work 4 or 10cm, you need to stretch it a bit to be proportional. The easiest way is to find a DK pattern or buy a cheap 4-ply yarn and use your DK yarn on something else.
