This ribbed cable hat is as simple as it gets, making it a great option for last minute gift knitting or (almost) immediate finished-object satisfaction. Worked in the round from brim to crown, its clean design goes great with any gender, style and age.

Hermes was one of the 12 Olympian Gods and was the god of trade, thieves, travelers, sports, athletes, and border crossings. He was the son of Zeus and Maia, who is one of the seven Pleiades and daughter of the Titan Atlas. Considered one of the most clever of the Olympian gods, and served as messenger for all the other gods and was said to dress as a shepherd, with wings on his feet and his cap.
