needle size for Bernat sweater pattern
I have decided to knit my first sweater. I've crocheted a few, so I'm not a total newbie, but the pattern I like is for intermediate knitters, so this could still be an interesting venture. It requires 2 different needle sizes, as follows:

Sizes 6.5 mm (U.S. 10) and 8 mm (U.S. 11) knitting needles or size needed to obtain gauge.

I understand that I use whatever size gives me the correct gauge. Do I just go down a 1/2 size for the smaller needle. If I don't have the 1/2 size, can I drop down a whole size?

Here is the link to the pattern:
