Okay, I have asked four people, three of whom were wearing it on their heads. But none of them what it was. It's a knit hat, like a doily, so you can see the hair underneath (though the hair isn't piled in like a hairnet, it's worn loose, with the cap hanging on like a skull cap). Beret has been a common word to describe it by the people wearing it, though I don't think that's what it is called. Best description I can do is that it's a mix of the hats Rastafarians wear to catch all their dreads in, a hairnet, and a doily. It's usually packaged in with boho chic/indie styles. Usually monochromatic, very commonly white. WHAT'S IT CALLED?!?!?!?!?

so for those of you falling in love
keep it kind, keep it good, keep it right

I second Icarus' opinion.

I second Icarus' opinion. What you describe sounds definitely like a knit beret- a rather strange variant of the regular beret, but they seem to be up and coming nowadays, don't they?

Your description is good but a photo of some one in one would help a lot.

that of common sense. Humor is the best pain pill.
