A beanie is a hat or cap that hugs your head and is either knitted or sewn together using fleece or another soft, comfy material.
Unlike baseball caps, most beanies do not have a brim.
Beanies come in many different colors and styles just like other caps.
Fun facts about Embroidered Beanies
Other names for beanies include knit caps, knit hats, stocking caps, sock hats, tassel caps, ski hats, burglar beanies, snookie caps, dinks, and dinkies (no we didn’t make that up).
Beanie became one of the most popular terms for knitted stocking caps in the 1950’s when a cartoon called “Beanie and Cecil” became popular. The boy in the cartoon wore a beanie with a propeller on top, and Cecil, his best friend, was a seasick sea serpent who often saved Beanie Boy from the perils of life.
