Javascript design patterns

I understand OO and I can understand what a JS design pattern is, but I'm feeling a little overwhelmed by the sheer amount of patterns available. I'm constantly asking "which one should I use?". Typically, what are some of the most common design patterns? What design patterns do you find yourself using? Thanks for any feedback.

The question "which one should I use?" (regarding design patterns) should probably be asked at the beginning of every project. There's no one pattern that is ideal in every circumstance.

I found this neat article describing 4 JavaScript Design Patterns You Should Know with examples of where they are best used.

And I haven't taken it myself, but I noticed they have an entire course on JavaScript Design Patterns at Udacity.
