  • Scots: a small cap.

    And gie to me my bigonet,
    My bishop's satin gown;
    For I maun tell the baillie's wife
    That Colin's in the town.
    My Turkey slippers maun gae on,
    My stockins pearly blue:
    It's a' to pleasure our gudeman,
    For he's baith leal and true.

    - W. J. Mickle, 'The Sailor's Wife'.
