Green octopus for preemies

This handmade crochet octopus for preemies is available in the Porcupine Knits shop on Etsy. Different colours available.

This cute octopus (or a jellyfish, if you wish) is made from 100% cotton yarn in two shades of green. Without any hard or sharp parts, it is safe for a small child. It has a smiley face and eight spiral legs.

Perfect gift for a premature baby, newborn or toddler and new mom. Research shows that the legs of the crocheted jellyfishes (octopuses) remind small babies of the umbilical cord from when they were inside their mother’s wombs and make them feel safer and calmer.

100% mercerized cotton.
Filled with silicone polyester filling.
