Knitted Knockers

Make A Knocker

Knitted Knocker KitKnockers are needed in all sizes and colors so have fun making the Knockers of your choice. By far the most requested are neutral colors though and matching pairs are greatly needed.

Please note that only knockers made from these approved patterns and approved yarns will be used for distribution of knockers at knittedknockers.org.

We are offering several approved patterns for Knitted Knockers that we have found to result in wonderful soft, contoured knockers. Our favorite is made in the round on double point needles. In April 2017 we released a new approved Knitted Knockers pattern made on DPNs for knittedknockers.org called, BOTTOMS UP KNOCKER FOR DOUBLE POINT NEEDLES that is an easier start than the original DPN pattern with the same great result. The original Knitted Knockers on DPNs pattern is still great if you want to continue using it but this pattern removes some of the challenges of starting with such few stitches by starting at the bottom rather than the top. There is a new tutorial for it below. Be sure you are watching the video titled “Bottoms Up Knitted Knocker Tutorial.”

Our favorites are the ones made on double pointed needles, or the magic loop method. In addition we do not want to leave out our wonderful crocheters so have created a nicely contoured crochet pattern. Crochet by its nature can be stiff and requires 1/3 more yarn. They still can make nice knockers though when using a “fine” enough yarn. It should be sport or baby weight and very soft. See our approved yarn list for appropriate yarns that have been tested and approved for crochet knockers.

We want to give a shout out to the creator of the original “Tits Bits” pattern, Beryl Tsang who as best as we can tell started this whole movement with her ingenious idea!

Below find Knitted Knocker Tutorials on how to make great Knitted Knockers. Make sure you are watching the correct video that matches the pattern you are using. The titles should be the same. Some are on the link, “click here for more tutorials”. Some videos can be quite long. We have identified time stamps of key transition points if you want to jump to those points for more clarification. These tutorials are not meant to be “How to Knit” tutorials however we have put links to some YouTube tutorials for some stitches that you may find helpful.

Patterns are free but donations are gratefully accepted to help us continue to provide
knitted knockers to the women who can use them.

Patterns in Other Languages are available on the International Patterns page.

The videos may be slightly different than the patterns as the patterns are updated periodically.  Follow the pattern if any difference as it is more current.

How to Size a Knitted Knocker

Sizing Knitted Knockers is a bit of an art. This tutorial gives you tips on how to size knockers for distribution. If sending to knittedknockers.org for distribution they will size for you. If in doubt call or email the recipient and ask them to measure the diameter of their bra, subtract ½ ” and knit or crochet to that stuffed size on the pattern. If using sister sizing we recommend not adjusting more than one cup size in either direction.
