If you use a different yarn than is suggested by the pattern instructions, the gauge of your swatch will likely be different. Different needle sizes and types, such as plastic and bamboo needles, can also produce different gauges. The gauge of your swatch also depends on the stitch pattern you use. For example, ribbing patterns will require a different number of stitches per inch than simple stockinette or garter patterns. Gauges are especially important (and handy) when you choose to use a different yarn than what is specifically called for in a project.
