Baby Bright Sweater & Hat

Lion Brand® Microspun

GAUGE:

23 sts + 29 rows = 4” (10 cm) in St st with larger needles. 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.

Baby Bright Sweater & Hat Reviewed by susan on 2013-12-13 ****
Making this hat and it is coming out great, but does anyone else see a size for "larger needles"? I see only size 5 listed so doing the whole thing in that. Did I miss something?
