Knitted Knockers

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and one wonderful way to help this important cause is by creating and donating Knitted Knockers. These soft, comfortable, knit prosthetics for breast cancer survivors are far preferable to traditional prosthetics. As the Knitted Knockers website explains:

“Knitted Knockers are special handmade breast prosthesis for women who have undergone mastectomies or other procedures to the breast. Traditional breast prosthetics are usually expensive, heavy, sweaty and uncomfortable. They typically require special bras or camisoles with pockets and can’t be worn for weeks after surgery. Knitted Knockers on the other hand are soft, comfortable, beautiful and when placed in a regular bra they take the shape and feel of a real breast.”

More information and patterns can be found on the Knitted Knockers website. Here at The Knitting Nest, we’re proud to lend our support by offering 50% off all pink yarns purchased through the end of October with the intention of making a donation to Knitted Knockers.

Thank you for your support, and happy knitting!
