Yes, that's right, we knit knockers!
Knitted knockers are special handmade breast prosthesis for women who have undergone breast cancer surgery. They are a wonderfully soft and comfortable alternative to the classic prosthesis.
Knitted knockers is a global project, with over 200 groups worldwide. In 2016, Zharity started the Zurich chapter. We are all volunteer knitters and we organize regular Knit-ups to learn the skills of making a perfect knocker over coffee and a chat. We'd love to see you at our next knit-up, and you can also knit from the comfort of your own sofa!
