Before the beanie we know today was created, there were caps called Monmouth caps.
Created in the 15th century in the town of Monmouth in Wales, they remained as the popular hat option from the 15th to the 18th century.
Then, in the 18th century, beanies became the popular go-to option for men in Scandinavia with outdoor jobs.
This new variation was made out of wool and was thicker than the popular Monmouth hat. Since these were for workingmen in the cold and not for fashion, they were much thicker than the Monmouth caps.
Fishermen, hunters, and anyone else who worked outside in the cold wore these “knit caps” as they were called at the time.
While facing down the freezing temperatures, they needed something to protect their head and ears against the elements.
Through the years, several variations of the knit cap were created.
Some variations were created throughout time with earflaps, face protection, or pom-poms on top, depending on the country that the beanie became popular in.
Even the Vikings were known to wear a variation of the beanie for a period of time.
Beanies were only traditionally worn outside in colder countries and rarely worn as a symbol of fashion.
In the 20th century, a form of the beanie became popular in Britain called the bobble cap. It looks like the beanie we know today only with a pom-pom on top. These were used mainly for the sports athletes throughout the United Kingdom that played in the cold.
Fast-forward to today and most of the people wearing beanies aren’t northern fishermen outside in the cold.
Beanies are acceptable to wear out and about without having a tough outdoor job. They’re seen both in the cold mountains and also in urban areas.
