Military Beanie

My husband is a marine, and is currently deployed

Apparently its pretty darn cold in Ramada,
so he and his buddies are right freezing

I’m trying to find a good beanie pattern
It has to be sort of plain, and very warm

Any tried &&true patterns?

I love this one. As simple as you get. I can knit one in a day. And since the yarn is doubled, it’s quite warm. (Much love to a fellow military wife. My husband’s Air Force.)
