I think the thing to keep in mind is the stitch gauge, not so much the row gauge. Do look for yarn that will give you the stitch gauge that the pattern calls for, especially at this is a first sweater. Work a gauge swatch that is 22-26st or so cast on and knit for at least 4 inches. That way you can measure the stitch gaugr over the middle 4 inches and the accuracy of your measurement will be increased. Go for the pattern that really interests you. We all can help.
