One of the reasons I started designing was because I wanted to provide more beautiful patterns to those who craft for good causes. The Wrapped in Lace PICC Line Cover speaks specifically to that goal. This pattern calls for cotton thread so it can easily washed in cold water, making it not only pretty, but convenient for the person receiving it. Since cancer, or other forms of IV therapy know no age limits, this PICC line cover can be adjusted for all ages and sizes. You will need the person’s upper arm measurements before starting this piece, but I have included some averages, should you plan to make these to donate to charity organizations.

Difficulty:
Intermediate/Advanced

Materials Needed:
1.5mm steel hook
150-200 yards #10 crochet thread
scissors
yarn needle

Stitches Used:
sl st = slip stitch

Additional Terms:
3 dc cluster: dc 3 together in the same stitch
hdc in the 3rd loop: work all stitches for the round in the 3rd loop of the hdc from previous round. Instructions: Look at the top of the stitch, and locate the sideways “V”, bend the stitch to look at the back, and you should see another “V”. You’ll be working into the back loop of that “V”, this is called the 3rd loop.
