Knit Those Knockers!!

What a great volunteer opportunity for knitters or crocheters!
For anyone who has undergone a mastectomy or knows someone
who has lost their breasts to a disease, this is a way
we can give some of ourselves to make them
feel more comfortable!
Join in--and knit those knockers!
The website has patterns for both knitted and crochet, 
along with tutorials and instructions.
Check it out!

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. volunteer knitters provide these free to those requesting them. Knitted knockers can be adjusted to fill the gap for breasts that are uneven and easily adapted for those going through reconstruction by simply removing some of the stuffing.
