Subject: Togie

I am writing a paper on the differnt words people in the U.S. have for
their winter hat. The origin of calling it toboggan is because when
people ride toboggans, it's winter and they have to wear this knit hat to
keep warm. But, I have been getting names such as togie, skull hat, and
stocking hat and was wondering if there was a particular region or race
that these words developed from. Thanks for any help you can give.
