As a general rule the above information shows which needles are used with which yarn,it can vary by ½ or ¼ a needles size dependant on the pattern. However if you want a looser look then use a slightly larger needle, alternatively if you want a tighter finish/ look then use a smaller needle size.
All knitting patterns will always state which needles you should use and this should always be followed.  However the correct tension is the most important part in following any pattern and you may need to change your needle size to achieve the correct tension.
