Herein lies the reason why doing your own gauge swatch is so important when knitting a garment! The person that wrote the pattern must have gotten another gauge with his/her knitting style. Some people knit looser, some tighter.
If i may suggest, knit a 4" by 4" swatch with the yarn that you have chosen, then measure the gauge, & then proceed from there
