trouble with gauge

I have been knitting for several years and have always been able to get the correct gauge for my projects. However, I just purchased a new pattern for a top-down cardigan, bought my yarn, and for some reason, I cannot get the correct gauge for this pattern, after changing needles several times.
I have knitted cardigans and pull-over sweaters before, and have always gotten gauge. I don't know if it's the yarn, the pattern or me.
Does anyone have any suggestions what might have happened? When I changed needle sizes, my fabric seemed "stiff". So, I have put my pattern away and have given up on this particular project. By the way, my yarn is Plymouth Encore.
