Even though this may be a free pattern, you should provide just a link instead of copying and pasting the entire pattern into your question. I suggest you go back to your original post and delete the instructions but provide a link to it.

1. Are you using the yarn called for in the pattern? If not, is your yarn thicker or heavier than the pattern yarn?
2. If you are using the yarn called for or a yarn of similar thickness, are you achieving the pattern gauge of 14½ sc and 17 rows = 4 ins [10 cm]. If your gauge is looser -- that is fewer sc's and rows to 10 inches, you need to experiment with smaller hooks to achieve gauge.
