Many Questions Are Answered on our FAQ page.
The video is not the same as my pattern!
Our patterns are revised periodically as improvements are found. These changes may not be reflected in the videos. If you notice a difference, follow the pattern. To get the latest version of our patterns check out http://www.knittedknockers.org/make-a-knocker/.
What kind of yarn can I use to make the knockers?
The yarn used for Knitted Knockers is very important as they are to be worn against scarred, sensitive skin. We have compiled a list of yarns that have been tested and approved as appropriate for Knitted Knockers. Most women prefer cotton as it is breathable so we have listed mostly cotton or cotton blends. The acrylic yarns listed are only for swimming as they are not worn daily. Crochet requires a finer yarn than knit as it can be a bit stiffer so we have identified the yarns appropriate for crochet. Please note that only knockers made from the attached list will be used to fill orders from knittedknockers.org so if knitting or crocheting for us please only use these yarns.
What are your most requested sizes?
We get requests for all sizes but the largest number of requests are for pairs of size Cs and larger of the neutral colors. Sizing is a bit of an art. Looser knit will stretch more when stuffed than tighter knitters. The stuffed knocker should measure about the diameters listed on the pattern. The patterns have been revised 3-20-17 in an attempt to make our sizing a bit better. The final determination would be to fully stuff a knocker and measure across the back from the point to the midpoint of the other size.
Where do I send them when they are done?
If you don't have a local collection point we can always use them to fill orders from our website. They can be mailed unstuffed to save on postage to: Knitted Knockers, 1780 Iowa St., Bellingham, WA 98229. Be sure and include your contact information so we can thank you.
