The octopus is a great cuddle buddy. He has eight arms to hug with and is a wonderful life partner. Octopuses provide comfort because the tentacles remind babies of the umbilical cord in the womb. Preemie babies especially benefit from this because they tend to not rip out their monitors as much because they're hold. It also improves health overall. The Octopus is also great for developing motor skills like grabbing and to enhance sensory experience for any baby.
So let's get going and make octopus toys!
This pattern is for an octopus that measures 10 inches from the head down to his tentacles. The eyes are crocheted to keep your baby safe from choking hazards. It is an easy pattern for beginners who know how to work in the round. You must know how the basics of increasing and decreasing stitches. Instructions and abbreviations are written in English.
