Recommended Needle Size is a US #11 which should give you 14 stitches and 16 rows per 4 inches.

This is a fun and funky yarn that is lumpy and bumpy. It has short segments of different type fibers including a metallic fiber and had different jewel like colors. Some segments have two strands of thinner fibers and other segments with a thicker fiber along with a thinner fiber. The double strands make it a little more difficult to see the stitches on needle. It has a nice drape but little stitch definition. Claire in my SNB group suggested knitting a mesh style beach bag with it. It is fun looking and has enough elacity to it to allow the bag to stretch to accommodate towels and such.
