Dd wants me to knit a jumper for her teddy. I have found a free pattern on the internet, but it states worsted weight wool. I have some dk, will that do?

worsted is heavier than dk, more like arran (although i think worsted may be a little lighter than arran, hold on, let me find a table...)

hmm can't find one, but it yep worsted = aran (oops spelling) dk = sport

found one on ravelry - worsted is somewhere between dk and aran; personally I would go for dk smile

thanks, used dk in the end, and it was fine (well, I thought it was fine, dd said, "It's okay, but the sleeves are too long" hmm).
