This pattern is written for three different weights of yarns, three different sizes, and three different stripe patterns, which makes for lots of flexibility!
Each yarn weight has a corresponding recommended needle size (US 7 for worsted, US 8 for aran, and US 9 for bulky) and desired stitch gauge. Gauge is not critical for this pattern, but you'll want to make sure your stitches aren't so loose that you'll be able to see the ball's stuffing through them.
