There are occasions when you can go to town with the colours and patterning on your beaning, such as if you want increased visibility whilst doing outdoor sports. If you are planning a winter sports holiday abroad, always read the official guidance.

The latter is often the best choice for heavier knit beanies or very light hats with a looser fit. If you really want to show off your hair, you could go for the double roll, which thickens the cuff to reveal more of your crowning glory.
