October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. At Long Tail Yarn, we would like to do something to help bring awareness to breast cancer and to help a good cause. We have chosen to support an organization called Knitted Knockers as part of our breast cancer awareness month. Knitted Knockers is an organization that provides special handmade breast prosthesis for women who have undergone mastectomies or other procedures to the breast. These knockers are knit or crocheted using specific yarn and patterns that have been proven to make the most comfortable knockers.
As part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and forever, Long Tail Yarn is providing the following to knitters and crocheters of knockers.
Knitted knockers has a page on their website with patterns and videos for making the knockers.
