Maximus is a stylish hat for the men in your life. Featuring a cable panel reminiscent of strong iron helmets worn during misty battles, Maximus appeals to the smallest of boys, the largest of men and all the warriors in between.
With its simple two-by-two rib and oh-so-perfect curved shaping he’s a deliciously cosy and handsome hat that keeps the bravest of heads warm.
Knitted in worsted weight yarn Maximus knits up quickly and is perfect for knitters that love a few simples cables thrown in with a good dose of ribbing.
