i want to make a beanie that's like this: http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting...er=asc&start=0
only without the VW and i want to use my thick & quick lion brand yarn instead.
and i have NO idea how many to cast on now.. since the yarn size matters? and i'm not so sure if the change in the number of stitches casted on affects the decreases and all that craziness... i'm sure it does. i might also need an explanation of guages.
please help. i want to start SOON.
