I think it is called "beret". I am not sure though.
i've also heard knittted hats like that called snoods although most snoods have a more open knit
I'd call it a knit beret. Maybe there's another name too.
Yup, it's a beret
thanks everyone! I always thought a beret looked like this

That could easily be shaped the same way as the one in the OP, but due to the stiffness of the material it ends up looking quite different.
This hat is a beret, and it's from Urban Outfitters. Only $24!
