Knitted Knockerthon

Knitted Knockers are knitted or crocheted breast prostheses for women who have undergone mastectomies. Knitted Knockers are soft, and can be comfortably worn in a regular bra soon after surgery. Moreover, they are beautiful and survivors love them!

The Knitted Knocker-thon is an afternoon of knitters & crocheters making these handcrafted breast prostheses to be donated to local breast cancer support groups.
