yarn weights & needle sizes

All of my patterns can be knit & felted 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 be knit using a bulky, a sport or a fingering weight yarn to create either larger or smaller sizes from the same leaf pattern. The golden leaf shown below used sport weight yarn and size 8 needles, the brown leaf, worsted weight yarn and size 10.5 needles.

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