Maximus by Truly Myrtle. Maximus is a stylish hat for the warriors in your life. Featuring a cable panel reminiscent of strong iron helmets worn during misty battles, Maximus is just the thing for frosty mornings and long runs on wild beaches. With the 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 simple cables thrown in with a good dose of ribbing.
