Note: different yarns stretch differently. The gauge given is based on recommended yarn and semi-aggressive blocking. Gauge is not critical in shawls unless exact measurements are desired. If you cannot achieve the pattern gauge, block your swatch and see if the resulting airy/dense fabric works for you. Change to larger or smaller needle size to change the fabric density to your liking.
