"Apoorva is a seamless, bottom up kid’s vest, knit in the round with a central lace panel that features the double herringbone mesh stitch. Apoorva is named after my angel baby girl and means “never before”, “unique” or “unprecedented”. The vest is available in 7 sizes, up to 6 years and requires minimal finishing. All shaping for the armholes and neck is achieved over knitted rounds or rows, without the need to pick up stitches. The vest is knit in DK/light worsted yan at a gauge of 20sts per inch and makes for a great layering garment."

The yarn referenced here and on the pattern in ravelry states it is a worsted weight, but if you click on the yarn link, you're taken to the yarn info page and it states it's DK yarn. The gauge of the pattern indicates it's dk yarn, will have to try both to see which works properly.
