What means BK yarn

DK means double knit. It's a yarn weight similar to Sport weight

i really like this pattern. i have little need for bonnets and mittens in a tropical country (Venezuela) but a favorite niece has moved to Buenos Aires with her tiny baby and it is getting cold there! so Great-aunt Carol will knit several of these for her baby Victoria Sofia. thanks for the pattern and God bless you. you sound like a wonderful family.

Thank you for this pattern! I am a brand new knitter, and I'm not ready to try the dpns yet. This pattern is easy to read, easy to remember, and I have already finished two pairs!
