I temporarily monetized this pattern, because I recently had emergent car trouble. The repairs have now been covered by pattern sales and your independent contributions, so it’s now back within my means to make this free.

If you can, please also consider tipping me on my ko-fi or paypal if you enjoy my free-for-download patterns. From each according to ability, to each according to need.

Yes all cops. They uphold an inherently violent government where lawfulness isn’t -- and never has been -- a measure of morality. Nor are their statist vigilante collaborators worthy of any praise. ACAB includes all cops and their reactionary bootlickers.
True defense comes out of solidarity within the community and is controlled by the community, not some extant, bought and sold governing body.

Main yarn needed is 1 skein (218yds/50g) of KnitPicks Comfy fingering weight. It’s 75% cotton, so I’d class it a “stout” yarn for it’s weight category. If you use a different fiber content/brand, overestimating the yardage needed may save you a game of yarn chicken.
Uses 175yds (160m) for the body of the smaller version; 215yds (196m) for the larger one.

For the lettering: uses about 10-15yds (generous estimate) of KnitPicks Shine sportweight.

As of Sept. 16th 2020, the pdf has been edited to correct the larger size stitch count error. An email explaining this was sent to all previous downloaders at the time of the update.
