Barb had information about knitting or crocheting Knitted Knockers:
1.  You must use the current patterns that are on the Knitted Knockers Website.  Please do not use the old patterns that had the opening on the side!  The opening should be in the back.
2.  Do not "cinch" or pull the knocker "closed" at the end.  The opening must remain open so the recipient can add or take out the polypill to fit properly.
3.  Please stuff with poly fill only!  Do not use yarn scraps, or quilt batting, etc.
4.  Please do not overstuff the knocker.
