Octopi Crochet…


octopus-bookDid you see the article about crochet octopi for preemies?

Seems the soft structures with curly arms are perfect for little hands to hang on to.

I checked in with some friends of mine who are respiratory therapists for the NICU, just to confirm whether this story was true here in the US or not.

They tell me that yes! They see that the little preemies do seem to relax more and their vitals seem to be more stable, with the exception of the preemies who are on ventilators. But they suspect it’s probably because the ventilator is already overwhelming to their sense of touch.

Anyway, so if you do charity crochet for preemies, check it out!

If you are new to crochet for preemies and need some guidance on materials to use, hospital policies, etc., check out my previous article on Crochet For Preemies.
