i have a longies pattern that i knit on sz 8 needles. i just bought some gorgeous yarn that is better for sz 9 needles. can i just follow my pattern and expect to get bigger longies bc of the bigger needles?

Check your gauge. If it's the same with the heavier weight yarn with 9 needles, the pants will be the same size. If your guage is bigger, you'll have bigger pants, if it's smaller, you'll have smaller ones.

Plus, your pattern should have gauge in there anyway.

Expect the fabric to be a bit "squashier" and thicker as well.
