Which size should I make of this pattern?

This is the inches listed for Chest at underarm when zipped:

35 1/4", 39 1/2", or 44 1/2"? I'm a 35 1/2" at that point, and I've included a picture of how it looks on the model.

Original Question:

Okay, so the pattern I'm trying out is a hoodie pattern pictured in my blog. I'm using a dif kind of yarn than they ask for. I'm using wool ease thick n quick. Well they gave me two gauges, and two needles, makes sense so far until both of the gauges say "with larger needles" and I'm pretty sure that for the hoodie, the garter stitch is all done with the smaller needles (which the exception of a few rows) .... sooo, that leads me to ask this...

The gauge online that I got for wool-ease thick n quick is this:

Knit: 9 St sts and 12 rows = 4" (10 cm) on size 13 (9 mm) needles

The gauge in the pattern for garter stitch goes as follows:

Garter Stitch: 9 1/2 sts and 14 rows = 4" on size 13 needles.

Would that be right? I just have to ask. Because it doesn't seem right to me...I've done two rows so far and it's like an inch already.
