We’re taking a wonderful road trip around the state of Maryland, celebrating knitting and local yarn shops and American history and natural wonders and Maryland landmarks as we go! We hope you’ll join us on this grand adventure.

While we want to keep the shape just a bit of a mystery, this shawl a combination of a triangle and a scarf, with motifs based on things we’ve seen as we’ve traveled throughout the beautiful state of Maryland.

Each leg of the trip contains two options (one designed by Cynthia, the other by Valerie), setting every knitter up for a grand choose-your-own knitting adventure. Each option is a creative tribute to a landmark, or historical event, or region that can be encountered on a Road Trip around the great state of Maryland.

For more information, see: The photos of yarn here are our suggested yarn packs.

Yarn Kits from Baah Yarns are available HERE:

We will be releasing a “packing list” around the beginning of March, which will give details on all the yarns and notions you need. For now, buy the pattern, and we’ll update you then!
