Knit/Crochet for us

Thank you for your interest.

Applications for Knockerettes (those who wish to knit or crochet for us) are currently closed, although we hope to be able to re-open them shortly. Please do check this page and our social media regularly for updates on when applications will open.

Please note that in order to Knit or Crochet for us, you must have access to Facebook.

All our Knockers are knitted to order so we are unable to accept donations of knockers from knitting groups.

All our volunteer Knocker knitters and crocheters (Knockerettes) are required to make the knockers to our patterns (available once your application has been processed and accepted) and must reach the required standard. Our closed Facebook group is there to support you. All our knitted knockers are made in the round using DPNs or circular needles.

If you are interested in knowing why some of our supporters decided to become volunteers for Knitted Knockers UK, see our Why Volunteer? section.
