Legacy Knee Assembly
« on: Jun 19, 2018, 11:01 AM »
Hi - playing around with templates to see if I like the style but struggling to get my head around the knee template (from Ohld Vart's Legacy Patterns).

Does the longer edge at the bottom fold inside the top leaving a ridge on the outside?

Because we didn't have a lot of canon references to go by, we created the knees with a little latitude in their design.

The idea was to make them 'cup' under the kneecap...the two pointed 'vee' cuts on the sides are basically darts (like in cloth or EVA foam), where the edges are folded back to meet (which makes the bottom of the pattern fold down and under). The dashed lines indicate material that is folded backwards at a 90 degree angle on either side of the kneecap, for strapping and darts/weapons, if so desired.

Hope this helps. 👍
