I posted the gauge. Thank you for pointing that out about needle size/mm, as I was thinking it meant a size 6. I checked my needles, and my size 10 is 6 mm. I was thinking while looking at the sweater that those seemed awfull small needles for a bulky-looking sweater.
Sorry if I'm dense today, but I still am not grasping HOW to determine the weight of this yarn, as in is it a bulky weight so I know to try another bulky weight yarn?
Here is the pattern I'm talking about, if this helps:

Sizes - S, M, L, XL
Yarn manufacturer - Filtes Orsetto

It is apparently a pay pattern now, but I downloaded it when it was free and it shows the gauge info I posted above. Thanks!
