good guess
I think you are probably right in using a number 13 needle....I checked a pattern that I had and it was with a bulky yarn and used a 13 needle. However, dimension of my felted pieces has always depended on several variables....yarn (both weight and wool content and brand), needles size, felting time. I have found that you need to have room for the knitting to felt but that the looser the knitting sometimes the tighter the felting because the yarn has room to felt.
