The AllFreeKnitKnocker Pattern was inspired by the design of our site. Our knockers are dedicated to all of our loyal readers. This knit breast prosthesis will help the thousands of women per year who undergo a mastectomy and need to wear a prosthesis. This free knitting pattern is a great way to give back. Whether you give it to a loved one or send it to a charity organization for distribution, you can feel proud knowing your knitting skills have helped breast cancer survivors all across the country. Feel free to print the AllFreeKnitKnocker Pattern, share it with your friends, and get to work! Every stitch you sprinkle with love will help someone in need.
