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:

Make 1 or 2 boobies


Foundation: with CC create a magic circle

Row 1          into the magic circle - ch3, 12 dc, join (total ch3 + 12 sts)
Row 2          ch3, 2 dc in each consecutive stitch from prev row, join (total ch3 + 24 sts)
Row 3          ch3, *[1 dc in first st, 2 dc in second]* - repeat from * to *, join (total ch3 + 36 sts)
Row 4          ch3, *[2 dc into first st, 1 dc in each of 2 consecutive sts]* - repeat from * to *, join (total ch3 + 48 sts)


Foundation: with MC crochet 48 chain sts, join (do not twist!!)

Row 1          ch3, 1 dc into each chain sts, starting in the ch3, join (total  ch3 + 48 sts)
Row 2          ch3, *[1 dc in in each of 6 consecutive sts, 2 dctog]* - repeat from * to *, join (total ch3 + 42 sts)
Row 3          ch3, 1 dc in in each of 42 consecutive sts, join (total ch3 + 42 sts)
Row 4          ch3, *[2dctog, 1 dc in each of 2 consecutive sts]* - repeat from * to * until last 2 sts, then 2dctog, join (total ch3 + 31 sts)
Row 5          ch3, *[1 dc, 2dctog]* - repeat from * to * until last st, then 1 dc, join (total ch3 + 21)

Continue with CC

Row 6          ch1, *[2hdctog]* - repeat from * to * until last st, then make one more 2hdctog into last AND the base of first st, join (total ch1 + 11 sts)
Row 7          ch1, *[2hdctog]* - repeat from * to * 5x total, join (total ch1 + 5 sts)
Row 8          ch1, 1 sc st in each of 5 consecutive st, join

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 cup size (looks like bigger "A" cup to me) - use DK yarn (#3 weight) - see smaller boobies in the image 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 who finds an error in the written pattern, so 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.
