We have spoken quite a bit about ‘Knitted Knockers’ here on the blog- and the response so far has been great! For those who aren’t familiar with what Knitted Knockers are, they are knitted prosthetic breasts that are provided free of charge to women who have undergone mastectomies or other procedures to the breast. The response to Knitted Knockers has been so great in fact, that a lot of crocheters have been coming out of the woodwork and offering to do their part!
While a crocheted version of the pattern is available on the Knitted Knockers website, we thought that we would also offer it right here so as to make it easy for anyone looking to get started right away.
While Cascade Ultra Pima is an absolutely gorgeous yarn to use for the crocheted knockers, people have also had great success with the Cascade North Shore and North Shore Prints! It’s soft, easily washable, comes in a great range of colours, and is widely available at local yarn shops across the country.
Once you have crocheted a knocker or two, you can drop them off at a drop-off spot near you. Should you find it easier to ship them directly to the ‘Knitted Knockers of Canada’ headquarters yourself, you can do that by mailing them unstuffed to:
Knitted Knockers of Canada
115 Fiddlehead Cres.
‘Tis the season of giving, and it really is amazing how one ball of yarn can make such a difference in someone’s life. To learn more about Knitted Knockers of Canada and to find out how you can get involved, click here.
