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.

How wonderful ya'll are

A number of years ago I downloaded a pattern for Knitted Knockers and made at least 6 pairs using the expensive yarn required. After sending them to the mailing site, I got a thank you but no thanks message that the pattern I downloaded was discontinued. As a senior citizen, I decided to never knit for you again.

I have ordered a pair out of Canada - waiting in anticipation <3

What are the measurements for the organza bags?

I wish I knew about this 7 years ago!

What are Knitted Knockers??? Never heard of this.

Do you provide the pink drawstring bags? If not, where can I purchase them? 🥰

Thanks for your Angel work.

I need to find someone around here I have worn the same pair for 6 years.

Keep up the good work👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

I received some after my mastectomy over 10 years ago. Still use them - most comfortable prosthetic breast I've ever used and I bought many different kinds. My surgeons office told me about them.

NO clinic in or near Jacksonville, FL! What a shame!

I have two sets! Love them!

I love my knitted knockers. So much more comfortable than the prosthetic ones

Thank you so much for sending me a set to gift to a good friend. She told me they are so comfortable. Thanks to knitted knockers she can wear her own bra .

These are absolutely the most comfortable prosthetics! They are so soft and light, and very natural looking! Thanks and blessings to you all! ❤️

❤️🙏😊

Ty for making these. They truly are a blessing for those ladies in need 😘💗💞💕🙏

I love your packaging. Could you share the size bag you used to package them? I see them on Amazon and wondering if they’re the 5x7 or 6x9?

What you all do is amazing and helps so many women!

Another great gift idea for your crafter that will also benefit knitted knockers! (No, knitted knockers don't need to be blocked... these are wonderful pins for blocking other knit garments). #knittedknockers ... See MoreSee Less
