I am pretty narrow-stanced right now. I would say about shoulder width. I have brought my stance out a few inches these last few years. this might help fro a frame of reference.

Therefore: shoulder width stance with parallel feet removes nearly all stress from the knee. But, alas, you may be only be able to squat to above parallel or if we have the particular leverages to parallel and maybe even below parallel.
I have tried it an was pretty darn high my first go around.
