Here's the deal. My best guy friend loves those snug, knitted beanie hats. And, being the generous friend I am  Cool I want to make him one. Here's the catch. I absolutely love to knit, but the only things I've ever been able to knit successfully was, of course, scarves. (Why can't he like scarves!?!?) Anyway, does anyone know of an easy-to-understand, easy-to-make tutorial for a snug knitted beanie hat? My skills are minimal, so I just want a simple one... no frills.

Thanks so much! My friend and I will be eternally grateful!

I swear swear swear by this beanie pattern- http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting/patterns/hats/london-beanie.htm

It requires knitting in the round, but really its not that hard.

Thanks. I'm surprised someone replied that fast. Smiley It's always nice when it happens like that.

Anyway, I read over the pattern. It looks reasonable. And, I suppose I don't have to do the whole contrasting colors yet. I'll attempt a few tries and see what happens.

Is decreasing hard?

Nope, not at all. Its exactly the same as knitting/purling, but instead of "grabbing" one loop, grab two.

With the right color combination this might work... (and it's super easy, I finished it in about an hour give or take)
