Do I need to adjust the gauge?
Hello lovely ladies and gents! I'm getting ready to start my very first sweater (just in time for spring/summer, right??), but before I go ahead and purchase this yarn, I'd like to try and clear up some confusion I've encountered. I'll try to make this as simple as possible!

Ok, the gauge of the recommended yarn (Lett-Lopi) is:
18 sts & 24 rows = 10 x 10 cm using 4.5 mm needles

The guage for the yarn I'd like to use (Garnstudio DROPS Karisma):
21 sts & 28 rows = 10 x 10 cm using 4 mm needles

I'm going to be knitting a fair isle sweater, with chest dimensions 89 cm, length to underarm 40 cm, and sleeve length 47 cm.

The pattern has a repeat of 8 sts around the yoke, and 4 sts for the body.

My question is what, if any, adjustments do I need to make to get the same size sweater with the thinner yarn?

Thank you all in advance!
