When Cheryl learned about how crochet octopuses were helping preemies, she wanted to contribute. However, she didn't love any of the crochet octopus patterns out there. That's why she created her own. It has a slightly oval head, which is true to the real creature. She also has some great notes in the article about using safety eyes and checking for specific requirements at the hospital where you donate.
This crochet designer points out that while the crochet octopus is particularly good for NICU preemies, it's also a good toy for other babies as well. It promotes motor development and sensory stimulation, which every baby benefits from.

I absolutely love this one! This octopus is so fluffy and cuddly, that your kiddo won’t stop playing with it. Moreover, it’s going to make a great lovey – just remember to replace the plastic eyes for embroidery, if you want to give it to a baby.
