16 sts = 4 in. 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.

Row 1:

Sausalito Stirrup Socks Reviewed by Jill Hornung on 2014-01-03 ****
Love these socks. I just finished the first one. I used double pointed needles because I hate seams. I also loved the recommended yarn. my only complaint is that I could not come close to a 20" sock with one skein of yarn. My sock is only 16" which is quite a difference.
