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 prostheses for women who have had breast cancer and undergone mastectomy or lumpectomy. Traditional breast prosthetics can be hot, heavy and sticky. They typically require special bras or camisoles with pockets and can’t be worn for weeks after surgery. Knitted Knockers are soft, comfortable, beautiful and when placed in a regular bra they take the shape and feel of a real breast. They are adjustable, washable and can even be worn while swimming. 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.

My doctor gave me a pair today! ♥️

Thank you all of you who create knitted knockers! I for one am grateful. ❤️

Wonderful

I’m sure her task was a lot easier than the one I had shortly after starting up Knitted Knockers España. With help from a couple of Spanish friends I helped several ladies in the next pueblo to where I live to knit knockers on 4 needles. Once they got into the swing of things there was no stopping them.

I made myself a knitted knocker when I had my mastectomy, and then shared the pattern with a friend and fellow knitter when she had her mastectomy. Unfortunately, there is no place near to us that we could donate knitted knockers to, or we would be making more.

This is why I Knit Knockers!
I just wanted to tell you how much I have loved and appreciated your group! My daughter sent me my first pair of KK after my double mastectomy from breast cancer. I wear them 364 days a year! I have an expensive bra and prosthetic set that is just uncomfortable and hot. You all are so so sweet to take the time to make these and there is NOTHING like them anywhere! Somedays I look at them closely and think of some stranger’s kind hands somewhere that took the time to make them for me. It really has been a very personal part of my healing journey. My KK are closest to my scars and they make me feel and look natural and like my old self. I hope you can share with other knitters how very touched I am by your organization and to let them know that they have made a huge difference in my life post cancer.
With a grateful heart,

I love mine and I need more.

That is such a fantastic tribute to KK most caring and loving volunteer Knitters who transform so many lives on a daily basis🎀💕💕💕💕Thank you so much and God Bless you🥰🥰

Do you need pockets in your bra or can they just go in the regular bra .

I wish i could do one for myself cause i live in Yemen

I’m a knitter of Knitted Knockers - and you just made my day!!!! Thank you! ❤️

I love mine when I choose to wear.

I need two knockers. How do I get them?

I feel this a blessing from God. I have been a knitter for KK for 3 years. I am blessed to be able to knit for these wonderful women. I’m 84 years old and just had triple bypass surgery 14 months ago. We serve an awesome God. Prayers and blessings ❤️❤️❤️🙏🙏🙏

Sending love to all of you who receive them. It’s a joy & pleasure for me to make them & release them out to “someone” 💕

My mom just had a double mastectomy last week. How do we go about getting these ordered for her? How do they determine her size?

Thank you for your kind words. To help women is why we make them!

A labor of love for my sister survivors.

I wear mine every day too! And I appreciate that someone I don’t even know took the time to make them for me🩷💕🩷

Really looking forward to receiving mine. They’re wonderful!

Made and given in love and support!

I could have written the same letter! And I am just as grateful for my first knitted knocker that I received!

So nice to know that they are such a help to you.

They are our God sent ANGELS 😇 on earth🩷🩷🩷🩷😘

So happy that you really like KK. I just mailed 47 to be given as needed to wonderful people like you. God Bless you.

These lovely notes keep me knitting knockers.

Women loving women is one of the greatest gifts in life. ✌🏽❤️

God bless all the caring women that knit these!!! ❤️

Ah yes the ones I have are scratchy and itches. I would like them if they nice soft cozy material 😄

They are what makes me still feel like a woman post mastectomy. Thank you very much.

I have one on - left side - was not an option to have the right side removed - but I did have a reduction done - wished I could have had both taken off - then I would have a matching set <3 - I have a very dear friend that knitted my first knocker

Sounds like an awesome trip but I live too far. But yesterday I mailed 47 knockers in different sizes and color to the Washington office. Have an awesome trip.

YES!!! My husband and I are joining you on the cruise!! Can't wait to meet you all. We've been talking about a Seattle visit for years. This is so much better!

Just wish I could but I’m a tad too far away. Way back in 2015 Barb was my mentor when I first began knitting knockers here in Spain. My has this group expanded. 👍👍👍

Sending much love to you all. I am a “user”. I love love my knockers ❤️. Double mastectomy two years ago. All I ever wear are the knockers!! Thx you from the bottom of my heart!

Have fun!💕

Happy sailing ladies.

Very interested! I’d love more info on pricing.

Wishing you the Knockerest Best of Time in Alaska! Enjoy, have fun, NO Knitting 🎊🎊🎊 Share funny pictures! I will be thinking about you in Kigali, Rwanda at the Pink Wellness House🎀 Be Safe and All the Good Wishes! Philippa Decuir 🎀💕💕💕

Knitted Knockers are the best! Helps make me feel like a woman after a mastectomy. Thank you so much for what you do.

😔

I know you guys have a crochet pattern for knockers. How do I get my hands on that?

My Sister Knits, Longmont Yarn Shoppe, The Loopy Ewe - please share with your community. This is a fun group & good taste of cruising. 🙂

Hello knittin’ sailors! I am very excited about joining this trip! I would also love to join your Facebook group as I am a fellow “yarn artist” who loves to meet other creative future friends. I love the idea of visiting Alaska as I have never been there. Hope to see you in June 😊 Bri
