another thrilling jock release from papabearknits! working with the icord edge, you’ll build a buffalo plaid jock to wear, love and enjoy! definitely a design that’ll turn heads!

the woodsman is the perfect project to work on your skills purling back in colorwork. it utilizes duplicate stitches to incorporate the german short row construction. i believe the use of short row technique is the BEST in making a knitted jockstrap that actually looks like a jockstrap!

i also strongly recommend utilizing the lifted increases for both the left and right side of the pouch. this increase will give a virtually invisible increase and the jock will have a professional look!

the pattern includes detailed pictures of what the process of building out a woodsman will entail and several tantalizing photos of my lumberback, Chris!
