Needle size and gauge
The given needle size is just my suggestion. Your choice of yarn, how loose or tight you knit, all are factors, which have to be taken into account, because they can change your gauge immensely. To be perfectly sure, that you get the same gauge as given in the instruction, please knit a gauge swatch first.
