Home Made ACE Bandages Crochet Or Knit Pattern DIY Project

How to make homemade ace bandages. Crochet or knit these bandages and you will have them when you need them. These bandages will serve more purpose than ace bandages as they will work with poultice and such and let the wound breathe.

They will also last a long time and could be made in times when medical supplies really are not available. They can be washed, or even boiled and reused. The Prepared Homemaker shares patterns for both crochet and knit.
