Knitted jockstraps? Yep, they're a thing

Knitted jockstrap

If your mom knitted, she probably never made anything like this.

JR Carillo has decided to skip the traditional scarf or sweater, and has decided to use his talent to create one-of-a-kind jockstraps. (Which is kind of like a sweater for your junk!)

Carillo said it all started in 2016, when he was trying to impress a fella.

“He joked that I should hit him up when I figured out how to knit a jockstrap of all things," he explained. So he did it.

“There are very few places that you can find a knitting pattern for such a garment as I am sure you can imagine, so I just decided to take a stab at doing it without. After a couple of prototypes I was finally happy with the end product and took it to Instagram to see if folks approved and, to my overwhelming surprise, they loved them.”

But are they comfortable?

"The first question I always get is … Are they itchy?" he admitted. "No, they are very cozy and until I get the request for something made out of burlap, I imagine they will remain comfy.
 
‘And yes, they are supportive and they are definitely washable. I always recommend hand-washing, just because some designs are more intricate and I wouldn’t want anyone to accidentally ruin their piece in the rinse cycle."
 
You can see more of his work on Instagram!
