The marled fabric holding two strands of fingering weight together results in a DK weight gauge

These yardage estimations are overestimated a bit, so you should have more than enough yarn to complete your sweater. I recommend getting a big pile of yarn so you have more than enough color choices to work with as you knit.
The yardage estimations are for the total yarn amount using fingering weight held double.
