yarn weights & needle sizes

All of my patterns can be knit & felt using various yarn weights and needle sizes.
 
That is, let's say the Woolly Birds pattern calls for worsted weight yarn and size 10.5 needles. This same pattern can also be knit using either a bulky, a sport or a fingering weight yarn to create various sizes of birds from very large to very small.

The chart gives the recommended size needles to use with the different yarn weights.

Note: Just remember that if the pattern was originally designed using worsted weight yarns and you want to make a smaller or larger bird, you need to adjust the embellishing details as well. Such details as a larger or smaller beak, face, etc.
