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.

Oh my, very familiar with RO Beaumont 🏨Great job Linda.

🙏🙏🙏

Thank you for all you do to help women like me❤

Is there a clinic near Essex England where I could purchase these xx

My first choice after my mastectomy...you changed my life, made me laugh and had a very wide audience amongst my friends. Recommend every one who needs one gets one (or a few). So good for your sanity and confidence. Thank you, thank you, from my heart (and boob).

Knitted knockers are the most amazing things ever! I have found that you have to pin them in your bra or bathing suit way down at the bottom of the knocker to keep them in place. Thank you to all the people who make these. ❤️❤️❤️

Such a wonderful support group for people like me! I'm so thankful for the ones I got when I needed them!! Thank you for sharing your talents & generosity!❤❤❤

Great job Linda and group!!

Knitted knockers are amazing and I'm so thankful to the ones that make these for women like me. 💗

Fantastic and Heartwarming Gesture 😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘

This is such a blessing

Love Knitted Knockers! ❤️❤️

We got a new shipment of our cool tee shirts. If you are registered as a knitted/crocheter at knittedknockers.org or promote knitted knockers at an event we are happy to provide the tee shirts for a donation of our cost of $22 including shipping. They run very small so order a full size larger than normal. We have lady’s sizes L-3XL and men’s crew neck sizes L-2XL. All shirts are short sleeves. It may appear like some are longer but that’s because we are wearing long sleeve shirts underneath when the weather is cool. If you are already registered with us at knittedknockers.org .just email us at contact@knittedknockers.org with how many you want and the sizes and your mailing address. If not registered please register first at www.knittedknockers.org/knitter-crocheter-registry/and put that you would like to get a shirt. You can donate through the link at www.knittedknockers.org/donations/ and note that it is for shirts or mail a check to Knitted Knockers, 1780 Iowa St. Bellingham, WA 98229. The crew neck men's size tee shirts run true to size. (We currently don't have any 2XL women's so I would order a mens XL or women's 3XL if needed). Thanks!😀 ... See MoreSee Less

I’m SO excited to share about a project I got to take part in called Women of Impact. This online course was created by a nonprofit called Collide, which serves women through all kinds of programs, events and classes, help for access to counseling, and resources.

The Collide Women of Impact online course includes over 70 videos from women in diverse sectors - from stay-at-home moms to business owners to pastors to content creators. Each video in the course was designed to help equip and inspire women to enlarge their impact, pursue healthy leadership, and ultimately, serve others well by putting their unique gifting to work. I had the opportunity to share about how God uses the "Nobodies".

As a teacher from the course, I’ve got a special discount code to share with family and friends (that’s you!) if this interests you. The Women of Impact online course is available HERE and code WOI25 will get you a 25% off discount! This code is good through Monday 3/21.

I can’t wait to hear how this project impacts you!
