Size 2 knitting needles
Gauge: 12 rows and 9 sts = 1 inch
 k  knit
 p  purl
 st(s)  stitch(es)

Knee warmers or Kneecaps can be worn under clothing to keep knees warm or can be worn over clothing to protect knees or clothing when gardening or doing any work that requires you to be on your knees.

This pattern is sized average. You can add or subtract stitches keeping them an even number. They can also be made of heavier yarn if desired.

You can knit them on two needles (sew up the seam) or 4 needles.
They can be knit straight or you can shape the knee.

Cast on 80 sts and work in ribbing of k 2, p 2 for an inch.
Change to contrasting colour, if desired, and work 5 rows;
continue with an inch of original colour, as at beginning.

To make a perfectly straight piece:
Work in stockinette st for three or four inches
4 Needles: k every row; or
2 Needles: k 1 row, p the next
Repeat the ribbing cuff.

To shape the knee:
After making a half inch of stockinette, turn and purl back 48 sts; turn and continue knitting two or three rows.
Repeat the partial row of knitting and purling with several full rows between, six or eight times.
Then finish with the half inch stockinette and the ribbing as at beginning.
