UPDATE 2/11/18: I’ll be adding the letter and hand instructions soon in case anyone else wants to make this to hang up locally.

Last week there was some Nazi and racist graffiti put up around in various locations in my county in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. One example had a big swastika and the words “I kill n---ers.” Another said “N---er Get Out!”

I’m working on a big anti-racist yarn bombing project for my county. I went around my town and hung up anti-racist posters on all of the public bulletin boards. I also ordered sidewalk chalk and I am going to do some of my own (non-permanent) anti-racist graffiti. But my big project is this yarn banner. I have found several local knitters to help out with it, but I can use more help!

This yarn bombing banner will be made out of light-green squares to represent the green mountains of Vermont. I will make the letters and hands that represent the people of Vermont and appliqué them onto the background after I assemble it. You just need to make one or more squares and send them to me! If I have too many, I’ll make more than one banner.
