If you don't use the recommend yarn then you should crochet a gauge swatch. You either go up or down a hook size depending on how you crochet. If you are making an article of clothing then gauge matters. If you are making a blanket then the size of the blanket is up to you and gauge is at your discretion.
The books and the guild says, go up or down a hook size to get gauge but my opinion for a blanket only is : it is up to you.
