Gauge: 21 sts and 26 rows = 10 cm/4 inches in stockinette stitch with 3.75 mm/US #5 needles or size to  obtain gauge.
If you are having hard time getting that gauge, then here is what you can do: 

If your gauge is 22 sts and 28 rows, then work one size bigger than you normally would.
If your gauge is 20 sts and 25 rows, then work a size smaller than you normally would.

If your stitch gauge matches one of the above but you have more rows then you will be guided as to where to add rows to compensate.
