Anyone have an extremely easy hat pattern (beanie type) preferably with the round needles. Can anyone help?

Here are a couple links:

But to find lots and lots of hats (and everything else!) of all sorts of difficulty, may I suggest:

I've made this hat a bunch of times because the pattern is so easy to memorize (I'm horrible at memorizing things so...).

Cast on enough stitches to go round the head, knit in the round until it is high enough to start making it narrow, then start decreasing about 7-8 times per round, every second round: until it needs to start getting narrow very fast, then start k2tog around every other round until you only have a few stitches left, put the wool through the stitches and pull tight.

That's pretty much it.  My rule of thumb for hats with worsted or bulky weight is that adults get 80 st and kids get 60. 

There's a super easy hat a made for myself and my hub and I wrote down the notes in my blog:

I'm a relatively green knitter so this is a topic after my own heart.  I have a pattern for you!  The Kool Hat from Yarn Gear.  It is a super easy ribbed hat with a nice decrease that doesn't have a swirly decrease at the top (which I despise).

Here's the link:

I've made four in the past week and am working on the fifth Smiley
