Why are you loathe to do that? DK yarn is about 22 st over 4 inches so the LYS is correct. The larger needle will give you the larger gauge. Thats why the pattern suggests both DK and a larger needle for the drape. I would look for a DK you like since that is the suggested weight.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
