2017 Crocheted/Knitted Knockers CAL


Recommended Posts

Crochetville has a new charity that we'll be supporting through a year-long crochet-along in 2017, but we're going to go ahead and get started a little early. Crocheted (and knitted) knockers are super-quick and easy to make. We hope you'll join us in making some of these

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.

Running Knocker Total
If you make any knockers, whether you send them to Crochetville, Knitted Knockers, or distribute them somewhere else, please let us know! We'll keep a running total of how many knockers Crochetville is able to contribute to women who have undergone mastectomies and lumpectomies.
