Double knit like 4-ply? Rowan’s Pure Cashmere DK

My current knitting project is “Fawn”, a classic, understated cropped cardigan by Kim Hargreaves….

Rowan pure cashmere in shade "Cerise"

Rowan’s Pure Cashmere yarn

I’m using the recommended yarn – Rowan’s pure cashmere. I love the drape and feel of this sumptuous yarn, but it knits much more like a 4-ply than DK. Indeed I’m using 2.75mm for the rib and 3mm for the stocking stitch!

P.S. the picture shows my only pair of knit pro “symphony” needles. My very favourites.
