Sometimes it can be tricky to find the correct gauge based on the hooks that you have, even when using the same yarn.
No matter what pattern you make it is always important to check your gauge to make sure that you get similar results to what the designer planned for, particularly if it is for a garment.

The Marly’s Granny Square Crochet Cardigan was the 2017 Crochet Along using Red Heart Unforgettable.
If you can’t get your gauge to match it may be time to look at the yarn that you are using. It is actually a range of thickness that can be included in that category.
