KNIT PACKER

What’s a packer? A knit packer is the companion to the crochet pattern.


Simple, made in two pieces, packed and then sewn together. This makes it
easier to fix and re-stuff as necessary. A packer is any item that is used to create

a bulge in a person’s pants. When trans and nonbinary folks speak of packers
they’re generally referring to prosthetic packers, very realistic, made from
silicone, or elastomer. They vary in realism and come in a variety of sizes, shapes,
and colours. Due to personal preference, financial, or safety reasons, these
prosthetic packers are not readily available for many in the LGBTQ community.
As such we have discovered a need in the community that currently needs
addressing. Our first initiative is to create 65 packers either knit or crochet and
the 20 breast forms to supply to the local community. This pattern will always
remain free for anyone who wishes to male a packer of their own or for
someone else, if you’re local within Nova Scotia feel free to get in touch with me
either through Ravelry or my email (both in the header) for more information on
how to donate to your local Trans initiatives.

together
not our goal. The average length of most
packers is between 3.5” and 5.25”. The fabric you’re going for is something firm,
not so tight as to be difficult to knit, and not so loose as to see the stuffing
between the stitches. By adding rows, or increasing your stitch count, you can
adjust the packer to suit your needs.

Craft Cotton such used in dishcloths is much thicker yarn (a heavy worsted) than
the selected yarn for the packers. If you are knitting with Bernat Handicrafter’s
cotton, you might need to adjust your needles or stitch count (go from 20 to 16
sts)

Pattern
Shaft
Cast on 20 sts and spread evenly across four needles, join in the round being
careful not to twist.
Knit until piece measures 3 ½ to 4 inches.
Increase Round: *KFB, K2, KFB, K1* Repeat across (30 sts)

Head
Purl 3 rounds.
*P1, ssp, P1, p2tog, P1* repeat across. (20 sts)
Purl 2 rounds.
*P1, p3tog, p1 * repeat across each needle. (12 sts)
Purl 1 round.

Cut yarn leaving tail long enough to pull through live stitches. Using a tapestry
needle pull tail through last 12 sts and draw closed tightly. Bury yarn tail inside
penis, it will be hidden by fibre fill.

Scrotum
Cast on 24 stitches, spread evenly on four needles. Join in round, being careful
not to twist.

Knit 7 rounds plain.


*K1, KFB, k2, KFB, K1* Repeat across all four needles. (32 stitches)
Knit until the piece measures 3 ½ inches.

You want the scrotum of the packer to reach to the purl edge of the penis. The
fibre fill will change the shape slightly when stuffed but this is a good rule of
thumb to go by.

Shift all stitches onto two needles, 16 sts on both needles. Using Kitchener stitch
graft the scrotum closed and once again bury the cast-off tail inside. A three
needle bind off is also possible if you are not comfortable with Kitchener stitch.

Stuff both pieces, leaving the first ½ inch free of stuffing. Attach the penis to the
scrotum. This is where you can adjust the shape and length of the penis by
where you attach it to the scrotum. The simplest way is to attach with both at
the top seams. If the penis is stuffed too much or bounces up, tack down with a
small stitch connecting the scrotum and penis roughly three rows down from the
top of the seam.

*Note: If you are bringing these to donate to the Dongalong at The Bobbin Tree,
you do not need to stuff or sew the pieces unless you’d like to.
