Download the pattern to knit softies
Softies are are a light comfortable knitted prosthetic alternative for women who have had a mastectomy. When placed in a bra, these knitted “breasts” take the shape and feel of a real breast. They are lighter and for many women more comfortable than silicone prosthetic breasts.
One ball of DK cotton yarn like Skacel CoBaSi, Tahki Cotton Classic Light, or Cascade Ultra Pima, one set of double-pointed needles suited for the weight yarn you have (US 4, 5, or 6), a stitch marker and large eye yarn darning needle.
You’ll need a copy of the pattern to knit Softies. (This is the (third) revised pattern which Eileen updated in response to many helpful suggestions following the Summer SAK Splash.)
