Reversible PICC Cover

Reversible PICC Cover

by Yolanda Sheehan (Solari Etc.)

Reversible PICC Cover


Yarn:  Washable & Stretchy! Preferably Superwash Wool such as Cascade 220 or Knitpicks Swish,

shown in Cascade Fixation (Lavender)

Needles:   US Size 6 / 4.00 MM (circular or DPNs)

Tapestry needle

Gauge:  21 stitches = 3 Inches

Skill: Beginner



Loosely cast on 42 stitches – we recommend the long-tail cast on.

Circumference may be adjusted using any multiple of 3 (39, 42, 45, 48, 51).


Join, making sure stitches aren’t twisted.


*Knit 2, Purl 1*

Repeat between *.


Continue until cover is desired length.


Bind off loosely – we recommend Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Sewn Bind Off.


Weave in ends.


Special Notes: Length should be no shorter than 5 inches, because the exposed line is the same size for each patient.  Modifications are encouraged, as long as it remains very stretchy and durable.  Sanitation is important.  Make sure each cover is sealed in its own Ziploc bag, and made of yarn that is fragrance-free, smoke-free, pet hair-free, and washable.
