Crochet Octopus

Crochet Octopus

"Crochet an adorable Crochet Octopus for a Preemie, an older child or even for yourself! Backstory: I read an article about how infants in the intensive care unit find comfort wrapping their fingers into the curly tentacles of a crochet octopus. It reminds them of the umbilical cord in their mother's womb! I loved this but was not a fan of the crochet octopus I found in the story, so I designed my own! Please note: if you are concerned about the safety of safety eyes, please embroider instead. To donate, please contact your local hospital to get their requirements."

You are so right, my Grand kids love these crochet octopus! I have made about 20 of them this pass few months. I haven't used the variegated yarn yet, everyone has their own favorite colors. I hope my picture comes through showing just 3 of the ones I did. Thank you for sharing this free crochet octopus pattern. jellyfish.jpg
