"Every year thousands of people require IV ports for Chemotherapy as well as to treat other illnesses like Cystic Fibrosis, and Lyme Disease, and it doesn't take a genius to know that that's a lot of people in need. I'm sure at least a few of these individuals are ladies who would appreciate having a pretty cover to go over their IV port. 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, and serious illness know no age limits, this cover can be adjusted for all ages and sizes."

NotesEdging stitch count is worked in multiples of 12. You *must* stick to this multiple or the lace won’t come out right. I recommend sticking with the lowest multiple of 12 that will not cinch the body in; putting a higher multiple in will make the edging flare out, and the cover won't stay in place as well. See additional notes in pattern.

I retired from nursing so I know a little about pic lines. I remember patients wishing for pretty cover ups like this. I made some for kids. I made spongebob and hello kitty and others like that.but I never made a more feminine style for older ladies. Now I can do that too!

Wow! I am awed at the beauty of this pattern! I have to admit that I would have never thought about creating this lovely piece. But I can certainly now see the importance and gifted it would make a thoughtful addition to many people's wardrobes! The pattern seems well written and suggestions are even made to embellish the cover! Oh, to live in a world one day when these are not necessary! But until then!

What a wonderful gift to donate to chemo-cancer hospitals. I wore biking sleeves to cover my PICC line port.

OMG this Wrapped in Lace PICC Line Cover is just beautiful! This cover would be great for me as well, I have nasty bumps all over my upper arms and try to hide them all the time. This lace cover would be so much nicer. The written pattern is well written and easy to follow, I can't wait to make these. The cotton will feel so sweet on my skin. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.
