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 Oak Leaf & Acorn 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 leaves from very large to very small. The golden leaf used sport weight yarn.
