You can look for Aran weight patterns, or for bulky weight. You knit to the gauge specified in the pattern, not the one you get on a certain size needle. That's useful to determine the yarn thickness, but you would want to match the gauge on the pattern on whatever needles will do that. You might just as well get 4 sts/inch on 9s, or 3 sts per inch on 11s.
