After having a serious knee injury, I realised that knees should be taken care of, at all times. What best way to protect them than with a pair of knee warmers! A pair, that can also be used as boot toppers or short leg warmers.

These knee warmers are very easy and fast to knit. They make use of a variation of the half brioche stitch and come in 4 different sizes.

Instructions are given in written abbreviated form.
