20 sts and 48 rows = 4”/10 cm, worked flat in garter stitch using a US 5/3.75 mm needle, after blocking.
Use a needle that produces a blocked fabric with a look and drape that you are happy with. Gauge is not crucial to this pattern, but keep in mind that variance in gauge will also affect the amount of yarn used as well as the overall size of your shawl.
