In lecture 10 of 22 in this module, it says the sheet bend knot is used to join lines of unequal size and diameter. In the workbook, page 126, it says the sheet bend is used to join line of the same size or nearly the same size. Which is it? Thanks.

Most would use a Sheet Bend to join two lines of different sizes as that is what this know is primarily used for. However, it could also be used to temporarily join two lines of equal sizes as well. Both are correct statements.
