Softies and Bust Buddies 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.
Materials to knit a pair:
One ball of sport or 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.
