I'm genderqueer, and one of my vague New Year's sort-of resolutions was to try to be more out with presenting as male when I feel male. I'm sure I remember seeing a pattern for a knit packer somewhere back in the day. I'd like to try it if I can. Money's pretty tight for me right now but I have plenty of yarn. I'm sort of paranoid about having to have the "well, I'm not exactly a girl or a boy" conversation with my family before I'm ready as well, and knit boy parts seem to have more plausible deniability ("ha ha, it's joke knitting! Funny, funny joke knitting!") than stuff you can buy online, which looks exactly like what it's meant to be.

When I look at patterns on Ravelry, I can only find one crocheted soft packer. I don't know how to do much more than a single crochet. Knitting would be much easier for me. When I look on Google though, I can't find anything useful amid the sea of Green Bay Packers knits. Does anyone know if something like what I'm looking for exists?

There's this, which has a silly first photo, but has been made into a soft packer at least once. (see here.)

Or perhaps a 'willie warmer' that is then filled and closed?

As a person interested in both kinds of packers and who's also got the football instead of the equipment upon searches, I feel you, sir. Hope you can find what you need.

If you're adapting a penis warmer pattern like the one above, I wonder if reading Beryl Tsang's Titbits pattern on Knitty might be helpful; as she talks about yarns and weights/stuffing for prosthetic knits.

I was going to suggest a search using -Green -Bay or similar to filter out results that aren't quite exactly relevant, but it looks like you've got some good leads.

I have so much queer love for this question!

what color yarn are ya gonna use?

might there be sparklies?

I think cotton will wash well and you won't have to worry about shrinking/felting/blocking.
