The pattern will tell you the number of sts per inch you should get. This is the gauge or tension for the pattern. For the yarn you were given, you can get an estimate of the thickness of the yarn by wrapping the strand of yarn around a ruler. See how many wraps per inch you get and that will give you an estimate of the yarn thickness.
