hi! i'm a fairly new crocheter and i have no problem with scarves, and so, but i would like to make a beanie, and all patterns that i find are written for some american yarn or so, and i'm bit uncapable of determining a gauge. could you direct me towards some beanie recipe that would just say how often do i increase and till when. does somethin like that exist?Smiley

Pretty much every beanie is written to be made with a worsted weight type yarn. Really, you can substitute any yarn and use any pattern and now worry too much about gauge as long as you use a worsted weight.

Coats and Clark has a "recipe" called LW1269 Gotcha Covered #2vanillaxlight is right about most patterns being meant for worsted weight yarn, but once you understand the recipe, you can use whatever yarn you like to make up your own patterns.
