Crocheted Boobies a.k.a. Knockers

Crocheted boobies/prostetics
I have seen many articles on the Internet with knitted and crocheted boobies - in other words, breast prosthetics. There are many ladies in the world that have to have their breast(s) removed, but either they cannot afford a reconstructive surgery or they just do not want one. Breast prosthetics is one way to solve the boobie situation.

As a daughter of a mother who had a mastectomy and later died from cancer, I decided to make a video of crocheted boobie/prosthetic. This is one way to give my fellow crocheters a tool, which means a free pattern so they can help their friends, family members, or any organization of their choice. 

See the free pattern further down below, OR if you would like to watch a video instead, see 2 links just below:

Note: Most of the time I work as fast as I can to keep up with knitting and crocheting requests. I have to videotape, edit videos, then convert them & upload them to my channel. After that often I post on my blog patterns. I answer many questions, which means that often I work up to 16 hours a day. I would tremendously appreciate IF anyone of you finds a mistake in the written pattern, to please, let me know - where (what rows) and what may be the problem. Many future knitters & crocheters from our artsy and crafty virtual world will thank you for your good deed, including myself.

First weave in all the tails of both pieces. Then crochet or sew both pieces together 3/4 way. Fill it with polyfill and finish crocheting or sewing it. Weave in your last tail(s).

If you would like to make a smaller "B" cup size - use DK yarn (#3 weight) - see smaller boobies in the image below.
