I am new to WordPress theme development. I am designing a new theme and using less codes and file as I am starting from basic. I am adding comments and comment form in my single.php using <?php comments_template(); ?> only. This one line is showing my blog comments, comment navigation, comment form all things. But its showing my commenters gravatar in 32px size that I want to increase. I know that if I will use comments.php then I can do it but How To Increase Comment Author Gravatar Size? in this circumstances.

The answer is that you can't do it without using comments.php. Since WordPress 2.7, comments.php is important to display full features and customizable comments rest if you still want to use <?php comments_template(); ?> then you can edit anything in it except CSS.
