Knit a Knocker
Learn how to knit or crochet comfortable prostheses for breast cancer survivors in this free class. It only takes a few hours to make a soft breast form that women love to wear.
A nonprofit organization called Knitted Knockers has developed patterns for all cup sizes and offers free patterns on its website, KnittedKnockers.org. It also has a list of approved yarns suitable for prostheses that rub against skin that’s often very tender after breast cancer treatments.
Materials: Four double-pointed needles, Size 4 or Size 5, or a Size G crochet hook; markers; tapestry needle. You can purchase a skein of Cascade Ultra Pima or get a free skein at the class if you join a volunteer effort to provide free prostheses to women who have had a mastectomy.
Knitters should know how to knit, purl, increase, decrease and knit in the round.
Crocheters should know how to chain, single crochet, increase, decrease and work in the round.
