You need to work from the top down.  Do you have snow?  If so, what's the snow load?  Do you need a permit to build?  Do you have high winds or permit requirements for them?  Then you need to design the roof to meet those requirements.  Once you do that, you will know the loads on beams and posts.  The toolbox on the left will then help you specify the timber sizes.  12x12 is pretty big!

Where are you located?  Update your profile so we can help you better.
