Do different size needles produce different size item?

I have a pattern for knitted slippers. It is a great, easy pattern, but the slipper are all the same size. How do I change the size of the slippers? Other patterns I have say for this size do this, for this size use the directions in the () and so on.

This pattern only has one size. I was thinking that I could use larger needles and the slippers would turn out bigger.

Is that right?

Thanks for your help. Terri

YOUR ANSWER


The simple answer to your question is yes. If you use bigger needles, the slippers will be bigger. If you use bigger needles and a heavier weight of yarn, they will be bigger still.

It might take a little playing around with the tension to get them the size you want, but it is definitely do-able.
