Recommended needle sizes are just that, recommended. I rarely make gauge in the needle size the pattern recommends. It's a good idea to try the size the pattern calls for but chances are you'll need to swatch with at least one other size, maybe two other sizes, sometimes it takes more. The Gauge Basics video is great and will help you to see what gauge swatching is all about.
