Knocker Knitten Kittens
of Mesa, Az

These ladies, and men, know how have an old fashion ice cream social for a good cause.  Knocker Knitten Kittens, headed by Artie Lueck, has been a long time partner with Knitted Knockers Charities. 

This group has raised thousands of dollars to help us pay for postage and supplies.  But they didn't stop there, they have made over 1,000+ knitted knockers!


Knitted Knockers - Knitted Knockers Charities Helping Women Since 2010

Tempe Yarn & Fiber (2010)
After hearing about Knitted Knockers from a customer, in the fall of 2010, Tempe Yarn started a two month community service project making Knitted Knockers for the Chandler Regional Cancer Center.  Local knitters made about 100 Knitted Knockers and the shop gave them to the Cancer Center where they were given to patients for free.

At the end of the two months, the shop started a new community service project. Then the Cancer Center called asking when they could get their next shipment of knitted knockers?  In parallel customers continued to make them.

Fast forward to 2016, the Knitted Knockers effort has morphed into a worldwide program.  Because of its growth, it separated from Tempe Yarn and became Knitted Knockers Charities a 501 (c) (3) public charity.  A website was set up,, to provide information to cancer survivors on how to get knitted knockers and to locate knitters who would make them.

Knitted Knockers Charities has collected from volunteer knitters across the USA over 8,000 knitted knockers and distributed them for free, to mastectomy patients in all 50 states.  But beyond our efforts, there are now groups in Arizona (Bag & Boob Babes, Knocker Knitten Kittens, Saddle Brooke Knit Wits), Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and Wisconsin that are making, donating and/or distributing knitted knockers in their local areas.  

If you or someone you know needs knitted knockers, simply send Knitted Knockers Charities an email with you name, mailing address and cup size, and they'll send you a free pair of Knitted Knockers.
