18 sts + 24 rows = 4" (10 cm) over St st. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Rolled Sweater & Hat on 2013-03-08 ****
Sweater is relatively easy to make and very cute when finished. I made it in pink recycled cotton. The only complaint I have is that when shaping the front, you are supposed to knit for a certain number of inches while decreasing at the beginning and end of each row, but you need to have a specific number of stitches when you are done. It would have been a whole lot easier to give the number of rows instead of inches.
