Upcoming Knockers Makers Session: 2nd Makers’ Session For 2019, Oct. 5, 2019, more details >>
I never heard about handmade knitted or crocheted breast prosthetics, or called as knockers, until Yasmin / @sugbo_sinulid shared to us her annual tradition of creating them. She would then gave the prosthetics to the survivors. Some members of Cebu Crochet Group joined in her tradition last year, and I guess we are now making it our own annual tradition.
To know more about the history of handmade knockers, you can read up about it at www.knittedknockers.org.
If you feel like trying to make knockers, here are some references.
