Mastectomy Prosthesis



These are known as tit bits or knit knockers. The knitting pattern can be found here http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall05/PATTbits.html

A collaborative in Maine has a lot of information about this project

This is a new project for the FFS in January, 2009 and we are working with the breast surgery team to decide the best way to get these to patients, so stay tuned.

The picture here is the first one made by Jane. It is very soft, breathable and the size can be adjusted by adding or subtracting the soft stuffing.
