Knitted Knockers!

knitkocker-logo_large

Knit-O-Matic is now an official drop-off location for Knitted Knockers of Canada!

Knitted Knockers are special handmade breast prosthesis for women who have undergone mastectomies or other procedures to the breast. These special handmade prostheses are knit with love by wonderful volunteers and are available to women who find traditional breast prosthetics too expensive, heavy, sweaty, and uncomfortable. They are made of Cascade Ultra Pima cotton yarn to be non-irritating. They are mailed to those who need them free of charge.

How Can You Help? Buy a skein of Cascade Ultra Pima, get the pattern from the Knitted Knockers of Canada website, and knit 2 or 3 knockers. Once made, bring them back to us. Or, if you don’t want to knit, buy a skein of yarn and donate that – volunteers will do the knitting for you! Easy Peasy!
