In March of 2016, Silk Road Textiles agreed to host a Knitted Knockers Donation project here in Cincinnati.  The project’s goal is to supply the Good Samaritan Hospital Breast Center and the UC Barrett Center with “Knitted Knockers.” Knitted Knockers  are special handmade breast prostheses for women who have undergone mastectomies or other procedures. They are a lighter, softer, and less expensive alternative to traditional breast prostheses. Knockers made at SRT supports local needs and are free to any patient who wants one.

Knit and crochet patterns are available through Knitted Knockers by clicking here. Whether you make your knockers at the shop or drop them off after making them at home, please include a note with the size of the knockers. Also, don’t forget to leave the back open about the size of a quarter and leave a 6 inch tail, as shown in the picture to the right.  This allows the recipient to adjust the stuffing as needed.

THANK YOU again for making a real difference to women everywhere!
