Phil's Knee Warmer

My father-in-law, after his knee replacement surgery,


complained that his new knee was cold during the
winter months. He requested a knee warmer, which I
happily provided. Here's the result!
Short rows add the knee bend to allow these ribbed
knee warmers to move with you while keeping you
warm and snug.
SIZE
Medium (Large) to fit knee measuring approximately
15 (18) around.
MATERIALS (for one knee warmer)
Yarn: 52(56) grams worsted weight yarn,
although if you shorten the top and bottom by
a few rows, you can probably get away with
one 50 gram ball.
Ella Rae Classic Print (100% wool) used for
blue-green model.
Henry's Attic Licorice Twist (100% merino
wool) used for purple model.
Needles: U.S. size 5 (3.75 mm) 16 inch
circular AND a U.S. size 10 (6 mm) needle for
a very loose bind off.
Stitch marker
Blunt darning needle
GAUGE
24 stitches/4 inches in stockinette stitch (knit at a
firmer gauge than usual for extra snugness).

P = Purl

W&T (wrap and turn) = leaving the yarn wherever it is


(on the WS if you just finished a knit stitch, on the RS
if you just finished a purl stitch), slip the next stitch
purlwise to the right-hand needle. Move the yarn
between the needles to the other side of your work,
slip the slipped stitch back to the left-hand needle, and
then move the yarn between the needles to where it
was before. Turn your work around.

RS = Right side

WS = Wrong side

KEY
K = Knit
