I wanted to make my own crochet breast pattern that can be easily adjusted to any size and that checks all the boxes. 

These Knotty Crochet Knockers are soft, lightweight, and breathable. It is ergonomically shaped and also comes with adjustable areolas! How fun is that!

So who would need these you might ask? These Crochet Knockers can be used as breast prosthetics by women (aka Pink Sisters) who have had mastectomies.

Alternatively, these can also be made into large pillows!

These knockers are often times more comfortable than traditional prostheses and can be used together with a regular bra.

This pattern is written for 8 sizes – A to H Cup, however, it can be adjusted to your liking. (Like into a large Pillow perhaps!) Working in rounds, the nipple is constructed first using the magic ring foundation. 

The nipple height can be adjusted to your liking or just have it flat if you prefer. Once the areolas width is met, a quick switch of yarn color and a continuous increase is worked up until the ideal size is achieved. This will be done while working in spiral rounds.

Coboo Yarns by Lion Brand

For the yarn, I am using Coboo yarn by Lion brand. They are the approved yarns used by the Knitted Knockers Organization which is a nonprofit group that supports, teaches, and donates crochet and knitted knockers to anyone that needs them. These yarns are made from a blend of cotton and bamboo which will give you a soft and smooth finish.

I am also using a 2.5mm crochet hook, which is a much smaller hook size recommended by the weight of the yarn but perfect for the entire pattern.

Handmade Crochet Knockers

When choosing yarn to make crocheted knockers, it is important to use a yarn that is approved by the Knitted Knockers organization.

This ensures that the yarn is soft and breathable and that it will not irritate the skin. Crochet knockers are often worn against sensitive skin, so it is important to use a yarn that is comfortable and safe like the yarns here.

Handmade knockers are a unique and personal gift for breast cancer survivors. They are a reminder that they are not alone, and that there is a community of people who care about them and want to support them. 

love your breast

Handmade knockers are also a symbol of hope and resilience. They show survivors that there is life after breast cancer and that they can still be beautiful and feminine.

If you are interested in making your own crocheted knockers, just follow the pattern tutorial above or purchase the ad-free PDF pattern here, or follow along the video tutorial here.

By making crocheted knockers, you can show your support for breast cancer survivors and make a difference in their lives.
