How old is the child?

You can create your own basic knit hat from this site. I used it when I first learned how to knit hats in the round.

Here's another:

By basic do you mean stocking hat, skull cap, just one that pulls over close to the head, bonnet style?

I made this child's hat that stays on well when it's knit with DK weight yarn and smaller needles.

The pattern is the Tychus from knitty The pattern calls for size 9 US needles for an adult male hat. I used size 3 or 4 needles (sorry I can't remember which) and some DK weight yarn for a hat for a 1 year old. Just measure the child's head and compare the gauge. Do a strip of garter stitches to get your gauge (the hat is done in short row garter stitches sidesways). It has a LOT of stretch so your gauge doesn't have to be dead on.

Were you looking for one knit flat and then seamed or one knit in the round?

http://www.kidsknits.com/hat.htm

I like this one (in the round), it goes quickly with bulky yarn, and it has a neat swirly decrease on the top!
