substituting gauge, easy math?
Greetings, knitters!

And so, this baby knitter has made herself a poncho, a scarf, and three hats... life is good, but for one thing: SHE MUST HAVE THE SLOUCHY BERET EVERYONE IS WEARING!

I've searched all over the internet for a good, basic slouchy beret pattern - Le Slouch is great, but not the texture I'm looking for just now. I'm not ready for cabling. So, I've settled on the Purl Beret. It's a good one, but I don't want to knit on size 3 needles. I'm looking for maybe 9 or 10.

As I'm still new enough to patterning that I don't have the general hat cast-on numbers, does anyone know of an easy way to do the math to figure out how many stitches to cast on, increase/decrease to make up for the difference in gauge? Math is NOT instinctual for me.
