Description from

Maze is knit out of 6-ply hemp. Hemp is a fiber for our busy lives. It won't wrinkle, rot, or mildew and it's machine washable and dryable. Hemp's knitting properties are like linen; it softens with wear and washing, but when knit has very little elasticity.

The Maze is knit in the round starting with a narrow roll rim leading into a modified maze slip-stitch pattern and ending with a rounded crown. I have taken the original maze slip-stitch pattern that can be found in Barbara G. Walker's The Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns and removed the repeat row. The maze pattern pops out due to the contrast in colors.
