You could use a heavier yarn since it uses larger needles, though a fingering works okay on 5 and 6mm ones. That or a sport or dk, not a worsted - shawls are knit looser than for a sweater or sock so you can use a much larger needle. However if you wanted to use a worsted, use a 6 and 7mm or even go up to an 8mm.
