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.

Big LOVE for Knitter Knockers! ❤️❤️❤️

This is inspirational! Back to my KKs-in-progress.😍

Love you all, thank you from a 5 year survivor 💕

I just received this from one of the knitted knockers volunteers named Sherry Martin. I absolutely love them and I love the special little note she put in there. I had a left side mastectomy last year so I had a prosthetic and a swimming one. On November 3rd a couple weeks ago I had to have my right side removed. I've been pretty upset about it. I loved receiving this!

Knitted Knockers started in my town.

A while back I brought a set of knockers i had made to show my prayer shawl group . One lady who I didn't know was a cancer survivor took them, tucked them under her sweater, looked down at herself and started to cry.

Willing to order..

Terrific!

That's great

Just added Knitted Knockers as my charity of choice on Amazon Smile. What a GREAT organization. Thank you to all the knitters that have made our lives a little better! ❤️

I looked through all the charities in the Smile Program and didn't find Knitted Knockers. Does someone have a link.

Oh! I didn't even realize you were on there-will find you today!!

I donate through Amazon to you, it’s so easy and a pleasure to do it
