Showcase: Maryland Flag Hat

This month's Maryland Showcase features Maryland's gorgeous flag which bears the coat of arms of the State's founders. The Calvert family was the family name of the Lords Baltimore and their colors of gold and black appear in the first and fourth quarters of the flag. The Crossland family was the family of the mother of George Calvert, first Lord Baltimore, and features red and white. Our flag is the only flag in the United States that is directly based on an English coat of arms and is one of four other state flags that does not feature the color blue.

Our exclusive Knitting Boutique pattern mimics the state flag with this Maryland Flag Hat. We used four colors in DK weight in the colors red, white, black, and gold. Add the Maryland Flag cowl to your order for our Maryland Flag bundle.
