Sarah Knits Tits!!

Yes she does! I finally posted my newest creation, knitted titties! I started making these Knit Tits several years ago when my grandma got breast cancer and had a mastectomy. So many of the options out there are made of synthetic materials, cost lots of $$, are difficult to care for, require special bras, and just plain look bad. So, i decided to create this stylish, comfortable alternative.

It's knit with Debbie Bliss' Baby Cashmerino yarn (yes its a baby yarn, but the color is very mature, a beautiful dusty rose) which has, of course, cashmere, along with merino wool which makes it oh so soft!

Look at how lovely they are! I'm so excited to have finally finished them. You can visit my etsy store here if you'd like to purchase your own Knit Tit for yourself or a friend. They even have nipples knit from icord and then knotted, which makes them look very convincing under clothing. And you can wear almost any bra with them, say goodbye to those mastectomy bras! I will donate 1.5% of the selling price to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Thanks for looking!

they're great! Years ago my Grandmother had a mastectomy, before she went into hospital for the op she made herself a fakie with fleece and muslin (or something like that). Grandma was known for her Dolly Partonesque bossom, so as soon as she came to after the operation, she was wearing her fake one. When the doctore went to see her he looked down and said "I thought I cut that off!" - she thought it was funny, they knew each other fairly well and she wasn't one to get her knickers in a knot over something like that.

Hi Sarah - I have a 94-year-old friend with a double mastectomy interested in your Knit Tits. Do you still make them? I noticed they were no longer available on your Etsy website. Thanks for such a great idea. Please reply through my son's email. Thanks, Kathy

Hi Sarah,

Where did you get the pattern for these? They look an awful lot like my pattern that was posted on the cpy website back in 2004 and the knitty website back in 2005. Did you know that this pattern was for non-commercial use only? You cannot alter, change, reformat etc. the pattern and then use it commercially.

Please cease and desist.

Thank you,
