By Naomi Attwood

<b>1. Mohair hat, £65, YMC,</b><br/>
This chunky cap has a “knitted by nana” charm to it. That's because the Berlin-based, upcoming knitwear-brand Maimi make all of its cosy hats by hand.

2. Neon with bobbles, £18, Piers Atkinson for Asos,
Hip milliner, Piers Atkinson's main line is usually worn by the avant-garde so anyone who dons this will attract as much attention as his famous client, Lady Gaga.
3. Polka dots, £20, Lazy Oaf,
This dotty hat nods to one of this season's biggest trends it's attractively oversized so it can either scrunch down round your head or perch bolt upright for a touch of Where's Wally-chic.
4. Black pom poms, £170, Sister by Sibling,
Design trio Sister by Sibling are one of the hottest names at London Fashion week – their neon Fair Isle with Mickey Mouse-eque pompoms ticks three trends in one.
5. Violet bobble hat, £12.95, Gap,
Every year, Gap is responsible for some of the nicest knits on the high street. A gentle approach to wearing neon this winter is with this vibrant violet hat.
6. Silver disco cashmere, £115, Madeleine Thompson,
Luxury cashmere designer Madeleine Thomson has added sequins to this sumptuously soft grey cashmere beanie.
7. Fair Isle, Paul Smith £85,
British designer Paul Smith has made a career out of turning traditional into trendy – this Fair Isle beanie in soft colours is a case in point.
8. Gradient print, £19, COS,
An alternative to crazy colours and jaunty pompoms, this ombre-print beanie would suit anyone wanting to stay warm and look smart. Grungy Nineties purism here without feeling too fashion-y.
9. Aran-knit, £65, Chinti And Parker,
One for the purists, this cream merino wool bobble hat from knitters Chinti And Parker is cosy and cabled like a fisherman's sweater from the Isle of Aran.
10. Turban headband, £49.90, Eugenia Kim,
The latest – and an extremely flattering – way to keep warn this winter is to turn to a knitted turban. Think Joan Collins in Gstaad.

From Fair Isle to something more fun, try a woolly hat to keep the heat in this winter. Bobbles optional...
