This hat is a pattern I created for my husband Dale. Being born and raised in Maryland, he is madly in love with the Maryland flag. After looking around for a pattern for a MD flag hat, I quickly realized one was not available I would have to create one. Not bad for my first attempt at designing.

The Maryland’s flag bears the arms of the Calvert and Crossland families. Calvert was the family name of the Lords Baltimore who founded Maryland, and their colors of gold and black appear in the first and fourth quarters of the flag. Crossland was the family of the mother of George Calvert, first Lord Baltimore. The red and white Crossland colors, with a cross bottony, appear in the second and third quarters. This flag was first flown October 11, 1880, in Baltimore at a parade marking the 150th anniversary of the founding of Baltimore. It also was flown October 25, 1888, at Gettysburg Battlefield for ceremonies dedicating monuments to Maryland regiments of the Army of the Potomac. Officially, it was adopted as the State flag in 1904.

Size: One size (Adult)

Yarn: 1 Skein each of Vanna’s Choice in the following colors:
Angel White

(Note: You will have more than enough to knit 2 possibly 3 hats with one skein of each)
Needles: 5.0 mm (US 8) DPN’s or Cable (Or size needed to obtain gauge)
Other: Tapestry needle

Note: Gauge is VERY important in order for this pattern to fit properly. You must obtain both stitch AND row gauge. I highly recommend doing a gauge swatch in the round using the first chart as your test pattern.
