You also might just try knitting a swatch with your yarn and needles and see how close you come to the pattern gauge. Often knitters don't get the ideal gauge that the pattern calls for with the specified needles. Then you would change needle size to get closer to the gauge given in the pattern. See how many sts per inch you get with your needles.
