17 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS).

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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

Tips to make the Phoenix Gauntlets turn out right. Reviewed by ChiefsnCardsfan on 2011-09-13 ****
This pattern is super simple and fast! It only took me 45 rows(including the cast on and bind off rows) to reach about 7 inches using the US size 8 needles. If you knit tightly and have medium to large hands, add a couple extra stitches when you cast on, or the gloves will be on the small side(it'll be difficult to get them on and to spread your fingers). Adding 2 stitches and binding off loosely helped the gloves fit my hands really well. If you are knitting them for a child, or somebody with small hands stick with the original pattern. Also, if you leave enough extra cast on yarn and a large tail when you bind off it won't be necessary to cut anymore yarn to sew it together. You can use what's already attached.
