This is a fun little pattern which employs a range of techniques and makes an ideal break from bigger knits. It can be made in any yarn weight, and is great for using up scraps.
I am making this pattern available for free, but if you find some enjoyment and value in it please consider donating the "pattern price" ($/£3-5) to your favourite anti-racist organisation. For established national US charities I'd recommend the NAACP Legal Defence Fund or Southern Poverty Law Centre and in the UK I'd recommend the Runnymede Trust, but feel free to go small or local. More suggestions are available here.
If you do donate please let me know! I'd love to keep track of how much good we can do with these little guys.
