If making a larger size will work, then you can do that, but it's more important to match the stitch gauge than the rows. You should also make a swatch that's larger than 4", so casting on 36 sts and measuring across the 30" in the middle after you've washed and dried it will be more accurate. With your stitch gauge being so much smaller, the fabric may be denser than needed in the pattern, though it's possible the yarn will relax after blocking and you'll be closer to the gauge for the stitches.
