Yeah. It's mostly that in my area the knit caps seem to be the hipster equivalent of baseball caps - something the girls wear over t-shirts and ripped jeans.
I used to see some women at my old (protestant) church wearing doilies - do catholic women ever do that? It always seemed weird to me, but then my church spun it as some weird modesty/authority thing that was kind of insulting. I have some headband fascinators that cover about the same amount of space. I don't wear a head covering to my normal OF mass but I'm trying to make it to EF and want to wear one out of respect.
The small round chapel veils/caps. Yes, I've seen women with those in the Catholic church.
I'm of the 'You forgot your hat/kerchief and we've got a school Mass this morning, you'll have to wear a Kleenex' era. Anything that covered your head was fine and it wasn't rare to see several girls with tissues bobby pinned to their heads at monthly Confession or daily Mass.
