A woman I know asked me to make her a crocheted PICC line cover.

PICC Line Cuff

PICC Line Cuff – Tunisian crochet

Apparently, having a PICC line is uncomfortable and having a cover for it keeps the tubes from getting caught on things.  While looking for a pattern, I noticed that there are several for knitters, and only one in crochet.  But none for tunisian crochet.  Here’s what I made….

Tunisian crochet hook size 6.5mm

Foundation row:  Ch. 32, insert hook in 2nd ch from hook, yo, draw up a lp, [insert hook in next ch, yo, draw up a lp] across to end. Return.

Rows 2 – 3:  TRS across, return.

Rows 4-6:  TSS across, return.

Rows 6-7:  TRS across, return

Rows 8-16:  TSS across, return

Rows 17 – 18:  TRS across, return

Rows 19 – 21:  TSS across, return

Rows 22 – 23:  TRS across, return

Bind off.

Fold the finished piece in half and sew up the sides to make it into a tube.  I used mattress stitch, but you can use whatever you are comfortable with.
