If I wanted to knit this, but I do not have any bulky yarn on hand what would I need to do to make this in Worsted or fingering weight yarn? It is a capelet, for some reason the picture did not post. It is a free pattern from lionbrand site

14 sts + 20 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS). BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.STITCH EXPLANATION:
