9 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.
dc2tog-over-3 (dc 2 together worked over 3 sts) Yarn over, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops (2 loops on hook), skip next st, yarn over, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook - 2 sts decreased.

Scarf is worked in alternating rows of sc and rows of a lace pattern.
In lace rows, the dc3tog-over-5 (4 sts decreased) is paired with a (dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, dc) (4 sts increased), and the dc2tog-over-3 (2 sts decreased) is paired with a ch 4 (counts as dc, ch 1), dc (2 sts increased).
This means the stitch count will remain the same.
