Knit a swatch! Before you start a new project, it is a good idea to make a swatch to determine your personal gauge with the yarn you will be using.

Since the yarn label recommended size 10 needles and you used size 15, you should not be surprised that it turned out to be a very loose knit. Try the recommended size and see if you like the look/feel of the fabric you create. Since you don't say what type of yarn you have (bulky? worsted?) it is hard to determine what needles you would have to use for the look you want. Experiment!
