COVID- 19 Update
Knitted Knockers is continuing to provide Knockers and services on a limited basis to the best of our ability. Please take all prudent precautions as these are handmade items and delivered through the mail. Be patient as things are taking longer than normal.

Knitted Knockers

Our Mission

Connect volunteer knitters and crocheters with breast cancer survivors to offer free Knitted Knockers to any woman who wants them. There is a huge demand for Knitted Knockers that can’t be met by any one group but together we can do it! If someone in each area will set a goal of meeting the need in just their county it can happen!

Knitted Knockers are special handmade breast prosthesis for women who have undergone mastectomies or other procedures to the breast. Traditional breast prosthetics are usually expensive, heavy, sweaty and uncomfortable. They typically require special bras or camisoles with pockets and can’t be worn for weeks after surgery. Knitted Knockers on the other hand are soft, comfortable, beautiful and when placed in a regular bra they take the shape and feel of a real breast. Our special volunteer knitters provide these FREE to those requesting them.

Meet Mee, Making a difference throughout the world from New York City!

My journey with Knitted Knockers started as a birthday gift to myself in 2017.  As I looked for the yarn at my LYS in NYC, Knitty City, I learned the founder of Knitted Knockers had recently spoken there.  I felt this was Kismet.  In the beginning, I brought all the yarn and tools from Knitty City and gave them the knockers until April, 2018 when they asked to me stop delivering them knockers because they had too many.

Hearing this request totally shocked me and it was then I decided to ship them to the Bellingham office.  At this time I sent an email to learn what cup sizes were needed – Christel nicely responded A and B cups would be appreciated.  These were sent for the next 3 years until November 2021 when the need changed to D, E and F cups.  What a surprise it was to see my knocker count at 1,000 on 2/5/22 – 4-1/2 years since the starting date.

Knitted Knockers

Love hearing updates from the provider groups like Knitted KnockersNortheast Wisconsin:
"I thought I would share how things are going here in Northeast Wisconsin. We meet once a month to knit and visit, which I call Vknisit (silent V). There are always 7 to 10 people which includes 1 gentleman, and we always have a great time for a couple of hours. On average I collect 15 to 20 pairs. This week I brought home 37.5 pairs which included the ones that were picked up at our LYS. I am so happy with the consistency of all of these people, and even add some once in a while.

I am so grateful to have fallen into Knitted Knockers when I retired. It is awesome meeting and getting to know so many people with great hearts that help out this charity. Thank you for all you and your group do to help women all over!

Blessings,
Cyndy

I'm on a continuous knitting cycle to supply a local hospital with Knitted Knockers. Should I register on your site so you know I'm doing this?

Love the Colors! 💕🤗

So grateful for knitted knockers

I don’t know if you folks realize what a blessing you are to us who have had a single or double mastectomy. I pin one in my regular bra and in my bathing suit. when I receive my first one it was the only time I cried even after losing my right breast.

Your organization is a blessing to so many including me. Thank you for all your hours of serving others.

Terrific!

These are so much nicer than the heavy Brest prostheses

Sharing Hearts, gives away free cancer care pkgs in Johnson county and always info on these to our patients amazing ladies making these

My Brother in Grand Rapids has been knitting them for several years!

You have no idea how much it meant to me when I received my boob in the post....changed my life, my confidence and hope that the person who came across the idea in the first place has a good seat up in heaven reserved for them.

You are wonderful! What you provide for us who need you is life changing. ❤️❤️

Knitted Knockers

So happy to help our sisters in Abidjan. Got this good report today:
Greetings from Abidjan!
I hope you are doing fine by God’s grace
Here we are doing fine and Knitted Cote d’Ivoire is doing great. We were able to distribute the knockers that you sent to us some month ago. One Hundred were sent to Cameroon. 80 knockers were sent to Senegal; 80 also were send to Congo-Brazzaville, 80 knockers sent to Mali and 40 to Benin. The remaining one plus those we were able to knit were shared among various hospitals here in Abidjan:
- Centre National de Radiotherapie Allassane Ouattara
- Polyclinique Farah
- Polyclinique de l’Indenie
- Polyclinique Sainte Anne Marie
- Polyclinique des 2 Plateaux
- CHU de Treichville
- Groupe Medical

I’m attaching some pictures to this mail for you to see how our sisters were happy to receive the knockers in some of the countries.

What a blessing.

BRAVO!!!! I love seeing this!

Have a nice day from knitters of Ομάδα Κοινωνικής Πλεκτικής Ωραιοκάστρου in Greece!

I LOVE Knitted Knockers! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🙏🏻❤️❤️❤️❤️

This is wonderful dear sisters, I’m in Rwanda and we provide Knitted Knockers and bras to any Rwandan breast cancer woman who needs them free of charge and distribute to the local hospitals. It’s amazing to watch the transformation from before and after Knitted Knocker experience! One woman had this to say: “Wait until my neighbors see me, they will never start whispering and giggling” We have to fight stigma and start building each other up. Keep up the great Job you’re doing!💪🏽💓💓💓💓💓
