Phone: +32474660109
To order knitted knockers from Belgium send an email to info@knittedknockers-Belgium.org with a note that you would like some breast forms. They will contact you with the information needed to place the order.
Pinklife is a non-profit organization created by a physiotherapist and onco-psychologist which offers help to women affected with breast cancer during and after the treatment in a non-hospital environment. Their aim is to support, inform, exchange information and offer to the patients and their family tools to go through this difficult time. They organize all kind of support e.g; Soft gym, cooking lessons, providing knitted knockers as well as knitting knockers classes, offering pinkboxes which contain cosmetics which are suitable for women in and after treatment as they are very hard to find and not labeled as such here in Europe. More activities are in the loop. The group exists only since one year and we are already extending our knitted knockers sessions to other cities in Belgium. Our understanding is that we are the first group in Belgium to participate in the knitted knockers program. We have presented the knitted knockers at two races e.g thinkpink race and have had many positive returns which I would like to return to you.

J’ai connu Knitted Knockers par l’intermédiaire de Ludmila.

Je me rends compte qu’un accessoire insignifiant pour certaine peut devenir indispensable et valorisant pour d’autre. Avec les petites mains de mon équipe, je souhaiterais proposer les “Knockers” dans ma région et les offrir à un maximum de femmes. Pour commander gratuitement votre prothèse, merci de me contacter par email à : kkfmayenne53@gmail.com.

I knew Knitted Knockers through Ludmila. It is important to me to be able to support women affected by breast cancer because I have worked with her in the family and professional setting.

Hi. I am a South African working in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I love knitting and crochet and enjoy knitting for the 67Blankets initiative in South Africa, as well as for my grandchild, friends and family. I do believe that a hand-made item is an item made with love and that love is carried to the person who wears or uses it. I recently found out about this wonderful initiative, Knitted Knockers, and ordered a few kits while on a visit back home. I have made my first knocker and have a friend who has just joined me. The Knockers I make are in memory of brave woman who are friends and family and in honour of all those courageous women who face cancer.

Knitted Knockers zijn speciale, zachte, licht gewicht gebreide of gehaakte borstprotheses die zeer comfortabel zijn voor vrouwen die een borstoperatie hebben ondergaan.
Deze protheses kunnen gedragen worden met elke gewone beha, ze nemen de vorm van een gewone borst aan en zijn wasbaar in de machine.
De protheses zijn makkelijk aan te passen daar je er makkelijk wat vulling uithaalt of erbij kan doen.

De protheses zijn te gebruiken in de eerste 6 tot 8 weken na de operatie maar ook daarna kunt u ze gebruiken.
Wilt u graag zwemmen met de prothese dan adviseren wij om acryl te gebruiken ipv katoen.
Dit omdat katoen er veel langer over doet om te drogen dan Acryl.
Als u Knitted knockers wil haken dan adviseren wij om dunner katoen te gebruiken anders word de borst te stijf.

Het doel van Knitted Knockers is dat iedereen die een alternatief zoekt voor een silicone prothese deze te helpen.
Dit proberen we te bereiken door de protheses vrijwillig te breien of te haken. Zodat de breiprotheses voor iedereen gratis zijn.
Alleen als de Knitters Knockers verstuurd moeten worden vragen we een bijdrage van €6,95.

Wij vragen voor onze haak-in en breicafé €2,00
Dit gaat in het prothese potje, hieruit worden dan weer garen en vulling betaald om het voor iedereen mogelijk te maken om aan dit prachtige project mee te werken.

Tricot Tieten zijn gratis, zachte, confortabele, gebreide borstprotheses die gebruikt kunnen worden door vrouwen die een borstoperatie hebben ondergaan. Ze kunnen meestal gewoon in de bh gedragen worden en ze zijn permanent aanpasbaar, (dus ook bij borstreconstructie). Ze kunnen ook gebruikt worden in een zwempak, de vulling verandert niet in het water. Belangrijk is dat zoveel mogelijk mensen het patroon hebben zodat veel vrijwilligers de Tricot Tieten kunnen breien. Daarom hebben we als eerste het patroon op onze website tricottieten.nl gezet en een flyer met het patroon gemaakt.
It is important that as many people as possible get to know the pattern to knit the knitted knockers. So the Dutch pattern had priority on our website tricottieten.nl.
Knitted Knockers are free, soft, comfortable knitted brest prosthesis, that can be used by brest cancer survivers. KK mostly can be used in a normal bra and they are permanently adaptable, so also after/during reconstruction). They can also be used in a swimsuit, because the stuffing is waterproof.

New chapter of KnittedKnockers.org based in Metro Manila, Philippines One of my patients had been gifted a knitted knocker from her friend in the US and I saw how this gift lifted her spirits up. So I started making some samples of the knitted knockers and began giving them out for free. The patient’s reactions were always the same and it motivated me to continue what I started. We have a Filipino word called “Bayanihan” which means the spirit of communal unity and cooperation to achieve a specific goal. I am hoping that you will join this bayanihan effort, by helping me knit or crochet knockers or by sending a donation towards the purchase of yarn, to provide knitted knockers to post mastectomy breast cancer survivors in the Philippines free of cost. If you would like a set of Knitted Knockers or are a medical professional who would like to offer Knitted Knockers to your mastectomy patients, please contact me.

BCIEA is a 501c 3 Nonprofit registered in Texas, USA and Kigali, Rwanda; dedicated to fight Breast Cancer through Advocacy, Awareness, Education, Empowerment, Support and Research in USA, and East Africa.

After Philippa discovered Barbara and knittedknockers.org who right away generously provided some knitted knockers for her Rwandan beneficiaries (they loved them); Philippa asked Barbara if she would consider coming to Rwanda and training a few Knitters who couldn’t read patterns or had no access to technology to watch her training videos. Barbara’s affirmative response continues to have transformational impact not only in Rwanda, but most of East Africa & many parts of the world. Oct 2016, Barbara along with Laureen and JB, visited BCIEA in Kigali, with necessary materials & trained 30 Rwanda women. Video of Barbara, Laureen & JB in Kigali. Since then we have provided over 1,000 made in Rwanda Knitted Knockers to patients in Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania, Uganda, Congo, Zambia, Malawi & local hospitals and clinics We also trained Susan from Kenya, she went home & trained 15 Kenyan Knitters including men & now Kenya has a group of Knitted Knockers capable of supplying most of the needs in Kenya. BCIEA realized that it’s difficult for people living off a dollar a day to sacrifice either time or money towards the cost of $10 per pair of Knitted Knockers compared to people in USA & elsewhere in higher incomer settings. We are running a Challenge Campaign called: #helpherregainherdignity. By sponsoring life-changing Knitted Knockers the goal is to have global sponsorship covering enough Knitted Knockers so that they are accessible & Free for all women who lose their breasts to cancer! Is this doable? Nelson Mandela said, “It always seems impossible until it’s done”. For those willing to accept BCIEA’s challenge sponsorship donations can be done via the website.

BCIEA, Knitted Knocker Knitters & everybody impacted by Knitted Knockers, immensely love & appreciate Barbara and knittedknockers.org. A beautiful, small & simple Knocker can and is making a World of a difference, We can Never underestimate how God can use one!

Hi, We are so glad you have found Knitted knockers and therefore, us 😊. Oakley Stitchers are based in the UK and are a not for profit group set up to support and help others with our hobbies and skills.
Although we started with Scrubs and other items for the UK Health and care services we are thrilled to also be able to offer our beautiful knockers to help ladies to feel comfortable, feminine and confident again. We also hope that ladies also feel more confident with our Aqua-Knockers and able to get swimming, sporty or more active again….., amongst other exciting projects.
You can see more of who we are, what else we do and what we have been up to on our website www.oakleystitchers.org.uk
As mentioned we offer 2 types of knitted knockers, day2day and Aquaknockers, Aquaknockers are easier to dry and withstand more regular washing, however they are not quite as comfortable for regular day today use as the day2day ones are.
Every lady has their own experience with surgery and have a variety of unique results, Knockers are designed to fit every shape and can even help to rebalance while waiting for further surgery, so don’t feel that they may not work for you.
We would love to hear from you and have probably heard every scenario, so please don’t be shy or nervous. To request your knockers please contact us by email listed above. Including your name, address, if it is a single or pair, Cup size (eg. C) any colour preference (natural (light to dark)colour or ‘fun’)
We will respond with an email containing our ‘exciting blurb’ which we hope answers every question you may have, or may not have thought of with the aim of ensuring you are as confident as possible when they arrive. Your details are kept safe and we do not share information with anyone, and never will!
Looking forward to hearing from you

“BEE HAPPY – CRAFT N CHAT” is very proud to announce the start-up of our new art and craft group run in conjunction with, the Glenholt Community Hub, a not-for-profit social interactive group that has been running since 2018, here in Plymouth. Our aim is to bring people together through social interaction whilst learning new hobbies; our very 1st project being that of Knitted Knockers.

Just a few weeks ago, we learned about “Knitted Knockers” through a search on the internet, being intuitive, I decided to look into how our new craft group (BEE HAPPY – CRAFT N CHAT) could maybe help and get involved, after I read about the huge need to raise awareness for women, with breast cancer, who have undergone a mastectomy or lumpectomy whilst either waiting for reconstruction surgery or not wish to wear a silicone prosthesis, through choice or expense, right across the world, but especially to those women living in the UK.

Our Aim:
To raise awareness about breast cancer and the plight for hand-knitted knockers and how we can make them widely available to all women free of charge who are or have undergone the traumatic adaption’s to their bodies that a mastectomy or lumpectomy has on them, both physically and mentally.

How We Propose To Do This:
With your help and as a community group through various ways of social interaction with family, friends, and neighbors both locally and further afield.

  1. By advertising on social media and our community newsletter and various free community newspapers and magazines, for volunteer knitting and crochet groups, and individual knitters and crocheter enthusiasts. Along with local wool and haberdashery shops too.
  2. By registering our BEE HAPPY – CRAFT N CHAT Group with knittedknockers.org /
  3. By setting up a small fund or donations in order to help us purchase, yarns and contribute towards postage and packaging.
  4. By engaging family and friends to join our pledge and start knitting knockers, using only knittedknocker.org recommended yarns and knitting patterns only, which can either be downloaded free of charge, straight from their website address knittedknockers.org or by emailing me Denise at dmills@gmail.com or by checking out our new Facebook Group “BEE HAPPY – CRAFT N CHAT”.
  5. Starting off by making some, initial samples of the knitted prosthesis and delivering them to various oncology departments and GP surgeries.
  6. By “BEE HAPPY – CRAFT N CHAT” raising awareness and talking to our local oncology department here in Plymouth and our primrose center, social prescribers, and GP and medical practitioners so that we can reach out to as many beneficiaries as possible, spreading the word further afield as we go along, right across the South West of England.
  7. By finding wool or haberdashery shops that will take part in advertising, running workshops and stocking the recommended yarns, and becoming registered drop-off points for completed knitted knockers.
  8. Organising collection and distribution to meet the demands of pr-orders placed or request for samples.
As a community craft group, we firmly believe in the cause of Knitted Knockers. We aim to provide knockers free of charge to women in Plymouth initially, then look at further afield thereafter right across the South West of England, to all women who are in need of our support.

Somos una asociación civil sin fines de lucro, creada en la ciudad de San Cristóbal, Estado Táchira el 7 de agosto de 2014. Motivados por la falta de información y poca atención que tenían las pacientes de cáncer de mama en la región. Nuestra intención es dar apoyo integral a las pacientes de cáncer de mama, durante su proceso de sanación y a sus familiares. En estos años se ha formado una gran familia entre médicos, pacientes, familiares y colaboradores. Como asociación hemos ido creciendo y creando alianzas importantes en el extranjero, ya que para nadie es un secreto la precariedad que se vive en nuestro país Venezuela. Y es por medio de nuestros aliados en Irlanda (Venezuelan Community in Irlanda) que conocemos el trabajo de Knitted Knockers. Nos unimos a esta bella idea con mucho entusiasmo para poder colaborar más con las pacientes de nuestra región y del resto del país. Pueden contactarnos por Instagram (@senoyvida) por allí siempre estamos atentas a sus solicitudes y de igual forma si quieren apoyar nuestra labor y hacer alguna donación.

We are a non-profit association founded in the city of San Cristóbal, Táchira State on the 7th August 2014 motivated by the lack of information and little attention that breast cancer patients had in the region. Our goal is to provide comprehensive support to breast cancer patients and their families during their healing process. Over the years we have become a big family of doctors, patients, relatives and collaborators. As an association we have been growing and creating important alliances abroad, as it is no secret that our country, Venezuela, is in a precarious situation. And it is through our allies the Venezuelan Community in Ireland that we got to know the work of Knitted Knockers. We join this beautiful project with a lot of enthusiasm to be able to collaborate more with patients in our region and in the rest of the country. You can contact us on Instagram (@senoyvida) where we are always available for your requests and also if you want to support our work and make a donation.
