To order knitted knockers from Belgium send an email to with a note that you would like some breast forms. They will contact you with the information needed to place the order. 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.

Knitted Knockers Nederland
Contact Name: Corrie Kuster
Address: Noordwijk, Zuid-Holland
Phone: (064) 453-3756
Knitted Knockers Nederland is een samenwerking van alle knitted knocker breisters in Nederland. Breisters kunnen zich aanmelden via de website en draagsters kunnen een bestelpunt uitzoeken bij hen in de buurt om te bestellen. Er wordt met iedereen persoonlijk afgesproken hoe de levering plaatsvindt. De verschillende breipunten zijn vrij om zelf te bepalen of ze versturen of niet. Een persoonlijke ontmoeting is wel heel fijn om er zeker van te zijn dat de prothese naar wens is. Vanuit hoofdkwartier Noordwijk en Oldenzaal wordt wel altijd landelijk verstuurd. Knitted Knockers zijn vrij voor iedereen om te breien en te haken, de patronen kunnen op de site gedownload worden. Er staan ook instructiefilmpjes en antwoorden op veel vragen bij de FAQ. We bundelen onze kennis en krachten om een zo goed en groot mogelijk netwerk te vormen voor de vrouwen (en transgenders) die gebreide borstprotheses willen ontvangen. Door deze opzet kunnen wij veel persoonlijke aandacht geven en ook speciale wensen vervullen. Ieder breipunt is onafhankelijk en mag zelf invullen hoe zij het organiseren voor hun omgeving. Wel zijn de knockers altijd gratis, gemaakt van 100% zacht, liefst gemerceriseerd, hoogwaardig katoen en de zwemknockers van acryl. De lijst van garens die USA aanhoudt is verplicht wanneer voor hen gebreid wordt en geldt niet voor ons, ze zijn hier niet te krijgen. Op onze website geven wij wat adviezen welke garens goed te gebruiken zijn. Ieder breipunt betaald zelf haar garen en vulling. De vulling is fiberfill, 100% polyester van gesiliconiseerde holle vezel, verkrijgbaar bij iedere betere handwerkzaak. Wilt u alleen breien dan kunt u breien voor een uitgifte punt bij u in de buurt of voor de landelijke verzending. Via de website kunt u zich aanmelden. Zeker gezien de recente ontwikkeling dat de siliconen protheses niet meer uit de basisverzekering vergoed worden, en de aanvullende verzekering steeds minder dekt, zullen er meer gebreide en gehaakte protheses gevraagd worden. Maar veel belangrijker is het draagcomfort van een gebreide of gehaakte prothese: het is compleet andere beleving dan de zware, plakkerige siliconen prothese. Wij mochten al vele honderden vrouwen hiermee verrassen en de reacties zijn unaniem positief. Waar sommigen het al jaren moeilijk hebben met de siliconen protheses is dit een geweldige uitkomst. Doneren aan het landelijk netwerk is welkom zodat we de overkoepelende diensten kunnen leveren. De diverse uitgifte/brei punten zijn ook heel blij een kleine gift om door te kunnen gaan. Naast het functionele is het meedoen met het brei netwerk ook een sociale aangelegenheid. Vrouwen ontmoeten elkaar en vinden het fijn dit werk belangeloos voor een andere vrouw te doen om haar lijden te verzachten.
Knitted Knockers Zaandam e.o.

Phone: +31 75 6124024
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 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
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.
