I consider light worsted any yarn that knits up most "comfortably" at 5 stitches per inch or slightly over. In other words it's in the light end of the worsted range, but not quite DK.

yea the pattern read "heavy double knitting yarn or light worsted weight"

And it took me forever to get that "double knitting" means "DK" haha. Thanks for the post tho - *crosses fingers for the socks*
