Most of us probably know a woman who has undergone a mastectomy or a lumpectomy that was so deep it left her breast permanently misshapen. Most of us probably don’t think about how expensive, heavy, and uncomfortable traditional breast prosthetics can be. Knitted Knockers offers a perfect solution to this problem: crocheted and knitted knockers.
Handmade knockers are soft, light, and very comfortable. They can even be used in a regular bra, taking on the shape and feel of a real breast. They can be stuffed a little or a lot, depending on the woman’s preference. They can be used to replace the look of a complete breast or used to fill the gap in a breast that is left uneven from the other breast.
Knitted Knockers are provided for free to any woman who wants a set (or even just one). As the organization gets more and more publicity, the demand is growing, growing, growing. More and more people are needed to help make and distribute Knitted Knockers.
Crochetville is stepping up to the plate to be a collection point and a distribution point to clinics and support groups in the greater Huntsville/Madison area of north Alabama. We invite all of our forum members and Facebook page fans to consider making some knockers and then sending them our way.
If you are local to the north Alabama area, you are invited to join us for monthly meetings to stitch and stuff knockers. These don’t take long to make. You’ll be able to complete a pair during our meeting.

Help Us Make Knockers
The Knitted Knockers organization prefers that everyone use their approved patterns and yarns to make the knockers. One thing to remember when making crocheted knockers: they are thicker than knitted knockers, so it’s very important to use a soft yarn no heavier than DK / #3 weight.
