Hats have been around since the dawn of humanity. Hats have served many different purposes, from functional to stylish, and have been constructed from various materials.
The beanie, also called a stocking cap, tuque, touque, or toboggan, is a type of knit cap that is usually worn for warmth. It was originally made of wool and favored by outdoor workers such as hunters and fishermen.
A knit cap with a pom-pom on top is known as a bob cap, bobble cap, or bobble hat in Britain. The so-called "Geek-Chic" trend brought this hat from utilitarian obscurity to a fashion-forward item.
