My dad and I keep telling her to sell her work but she thinks it would ruin the fun of it. I love the colors, too!

Only on Halloween? I'd keep mine on the hat rack by the door.

The reason there are so many patterns around is that in Europe crochet octopuseseses are given to premature babies. They're safer for them to cuddle than other teddies. The doors to the NICU usually has an octopus on the door too, instead of a cold clinical sign.

外围体育投注If your baby already has their octopus now, they won't need to come out early to claim one.

It’s amazing that they are safer to cuddle than other teddies. I would think the tentacles would be a choking hazard. Can you enlighten me please?

Yup, can confirm. I was going to suggest that maybe the person wanting to crochet these for fun could donate them to a NICU.

外围体育投注That's so cool!

I tried to give my baby a stuffed animal to cuddle with... He ended up having more fun bouncing his bum on it 🤷🏻‍♀️😅

Came here to suggest a NICU donation. Our daughter had two and seemed to enjoy them.

I've made a few of these for the local NICU! They help with the babies' grabbing reflex. NICU babies tend to grab onto the tubes attached to their bodies and an octopus gives them something safe to grab.

外围体育投注That's the one! She improvised the eyeballs so it wouldn't have any hard plastic pieces. I think the eyelids give it just that much more personality.
