The needle number isn't the important part, the number of stitches per inch is.

In order for the pattern to work as written, you will need to use whatever needles allow you to get 5 stitches per inch (20 stitches per 4 inches).

Katia Austral's gauge is estimated at 6 stitches per inch on 3.75mm needles, so you'll probably need to use a larger needle to get 5 stitches per inch. Try a 4.5mm/#7 needle. If you get too many stitches per inch, use an even larger needle. If you get too few, try a 4mm needle.

If you don't like the way the Austral looks knitted on larger needles (the fabric will be looser) or you can't get the right gauge, use whatever needle that makes the fabric look good.

Multiply the number of stitches per inch by the chest measurement you want the sweater to have.
(for example: 5.5 stitches per inch x 38 inches = 209 stitches)
Look at the "number of stitches" listed below (I copied it from the pattern) and pick the number closest to yours. Knit that size. (in my example, 212 is the closest number, so I'd knit the XL)

size: S[M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL]
number of stitches: 180[192, 200, 212, 220, 232]

I would help, but I am not sure exactly what your question is.  I have done several top down raglans and I found this website to be helpful in explaining the concept.

Good luck!
