I looked it up and it seems the needle size recommended is 8. Knitting with a needle that is too small can produce a very tight, stiff fabric.

It may also be the yarn. I haven't knit with that, but as I recall it wasn't very soft. If it is soft then you probably just need a larger needle. I'd go with at least an 8, maybe a 9.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
