Knitted Knockers Don't Have to Be Boring

Knitted Knocker should bring hope for a better future.  It's also okay if they bring a smile to her face when she sees them for the first time.  Here's a sample of one Lorri just made.

We've attempted to consolidate information, patterns, news, thank you notes, etc in a single spot.  To see this click here.

We've also just completed a logo that is meant to reflect and represent what we are trying to do.  Here it is, please send me your comments.

We want to thank the growing number of people across the country that have downloaded the Knitted Knocker & Crochet patterns.  It's amazing to watch this movement grow as women reach out to help other women. 

We are busy working on an updated version that will be much easier for both the makers and the users of the Knockers.   As soon as this is finished we'll post it here.

We are also continuing to work with Chesley from "the Knitting Experience" to build on her existing internet network to reach others.  She was one of the original founders of this movement and unfortunately life has sent her in another direction.   Watch for more on this.

If you are going through breast cancer, be strong and know there are others who care about you.

Knitted Knockers In the News

Hailey Frances from KPNX Channel 12 was at Tempe Yarn & Fiber on April 12 to do a piece on Knitted Knockers.  This aired on Friday April 13th and really captured what we are trying to do.  Here is the link if you missed it.

Making A Difference

This is a project that can change another persons life, while enhancing yours.  
Look around your group of friends and family members, it's hard to find someone who has not been directly touched by breast cancer or who doesn't know someone who has been.  By making a Knitted Knocker, which takes a couple hours, you have the opportunity to restore/affect someones life.

The Patterns
We did not write the patterns that we are recommending for knitting or crocheting the knockers, so I'd like to acknowledge the two pattern authors.  The knitted pattern, Tit Bits, was written by Beryl Tsang, while the Crocheted Falsies was written by Jackie Lind.  Here are the free patterns for you to use.
Our Goal
We hope to provide information for groups across the country who are interested in making the Knockers for those who need them.  We'll share what has worked for us and some of the moving stories from the ladies who have received the Knockers.

If you have questions for us, please send them to

How To Contact Users for Knockers

If you have made either knitted or crocheted Knockers and don't know where to donate them, here are a couple suggestions:

1) Call the local cancer centers or area hospitals.  You should be ready to explain (or do a show and tell) to them what knockers are (see earlier post).  Don't give up if the first one says they aren't interested.

2)  You can mail them to us (1415 E University Drive Ste A102, Tempe, Az 85281) and we'll find homes for them.

We've been getting a lot of people downloading the knitted and crocheted patterns for Knockers.  This is great! The impact on the lives of those who receive these is beyond belief.

Happy Valentine Day!
