Keeping abreast

Recently, my sister inlaw began training as a midwife. As part of her Course she and the other trainees needed knitted or crocheted breasts.

My sister inlaw can crochet and asked if I could help her crochet some  breasts for her cohort.  She found a pattern on the Lactation Consultants of Great Britain’s  website.

So far, I think I’ve made about 8 breasts. I’ve adapted the pattern so that rather than making two parts that needs to be stitched or crochet together, I just crochet one continuous piece. For round 22 I crocheted into back loops only (to create a sharp turn) and also began reducing.

Although not something I thought I’d be crocheting I do hope they prove useful.

  1. What a wonderful idea πŸ™‚
    This kind of thing would also be great for women who have to have mastectomies. There’s a great site, called Knitted Knockers: http://www.knittedknockers.org/
    They also have patterns for crocheted knockers, too:
