How to Work to Gauge
Gauge means the number of stitches to an inch and the number of rows to an inch. Always work a sample swatch about 3 or 4 inches square, using the yarn and needles recommended to discover if you can knit to the gauge required. Unless you can get the correct gauge as given, your completed garment will not be the right size.
Therefore, you must try a larger or smaller needle as your own work requires until you achieve the correct gauge.
The size of needles you use is not important as long as the gauge is correct.
