I want to try knitting a hat, but I can't find a pattern for a plain one, with 0 embellishments. I would like to use size 9 needles, by the way.

my first hat, knitted flat, was the VW hat on the free pattern page here. I just left out the chart for the VW part! It is super easy, with a small amount of ribbing at the edge, then simple decreases to the crown. no dpn's or anything!

This is a good basic hat formula. It works because you can make any size hat with it.

If you just want a pattern.... You didn't say what size you wanted to make so here's a few to check out.
