[Ravelry FO] Baby Moccasins

I have finally worked out that “Baby DK” in the UK is “sport” in the US and “DK” in the UK is sometimes “DK” in the US and that I need a W.P.I. tool. In the photo below both gauge/tension squares/swatches are the same number of stitches using the same needles and level with each other on the right edge. The green yarn is sold here as “DK” and the pastel blue yarn is “Baby DK” (or Sport-weight).

Green = DK, blue = "baby DK" (= sport?). UK yarn weight names are misleading.
