My poor hubby recently had to have emergency back surgery which threw us all for a major loop. Thank God for the amazing doctors that managed to not only diagnose but fix the problem in record time!! Me being me wanted to do something more than I was already doing as his stand in nurse. I wanted to use my God given talents with my yarn stash to create something to aid in his recovery.
I was inspired to create these handy little pouches for his many necessary ice packs. After some trial and error from my poor guinea pig I managed to come up with 2 wonderful designs. Just pop the ice pack in the pouch and stick the whole thing in the freezer. I chose to use cotton yarn because it easily washable and also seems to stay cold longer. I found these amazing Cryopak Ice Pak/Hot Paks at our local Dollar General and, being as those stores seem to pop up like dandelions, figured they would be easily found by most people. However, any 5.5” - 6” square ice pack will work just fine for this pattern.
