  1. Anything for babies under 3, but especially preemies shouldn’t have the plastic safety eyes. Worth noting that they’d need to be checked for safety, holes in stitches etc. before going to preemies too.

  2. If you really wanted to crochet octopus for preemies you should checkout the facebook page for the official ones that have been certified for hospitals. There are some strict rules dealing with how they are made and what type of yarn to use. The plastic eyes are a definite no no.

    1. Thank you for your feedback Elizabeth, you are making a great point. We recommend being very cautious while crocheting for children.

  3. I have a great granddaughter in nicu. I am having trouble with tenacles. I am using 2.5 hook. I have tried 2sc in each stich, 3sc and 1sc per chain stich. Maybe it is yarn?. I am using sugar and cream 100% cotton yarn. Any suggestions?

  4. I have looked all over Facebook and have not found a pattern that is described as official. Can you possibly send me the address?
