Wrapped in Lace PICC Line Cover
"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.
