## Instruction

1. Knee pads it is better to knit from wool or wool mixture. Before knitting it is necessary to decide on fabric density. For this purpose connect the square of 10 by 10 centimeters and consider how many loops and how many ranks at you turned out. Then measure the grasp of your leg at the level of 10 – 15 centimeters over the knee. After that calculate how many loops you need to gather to connect the knee pad of the necessary width.

The smooth cloth matches only front loops, without alternation.

3. Other way to make the knee pad – to connect by the hands the rectangle and to sew its edges. For this purpose needles or the trigger will be necessary for you. If you knit needles, gain necessary quantity of loops and knit the elastic band of length necessary for you. Then just connect edges of the cloth thread and the knee pad is ready. You can also make the knee pad not the continuous elastic band, and with the smooth site of front loops.

4. If you want to connect the knee pad by the trigger, make the chain of air loops on length exceeding the leg grasp on five millimeters and then knit columns without nakid to necessary length.
