Crochet powder: 60 models, photos and easy step-by-step

For those who look, crochet powder is just another little child's toy. But for premature infants they go way beyond that. And you know why? Crochet powders serve to calm and reassure premature infants, making them feel back in the womb. Learn more about crochet octopus:

When handling the tentacles of the octopus, the baby has the same sensation as if it were touching the umbilical cord. The idea of ​​bringing crochet dusts to neonatal ICUs came in Denmark in 2013 through the Octo project. The volunteer group stitches the powder and donates to the premature babies of 16 hospitals across the country.

The medical team at Aarhus University Hospital, the country's first recipient of the project, saw a significant improvement in the respiratory and cardiac systems of infants and increased levels of oxygen in the blood. The friendship and complicity between octopuses and babies caused the project to expand to another 15 countries around the world, even reaching Brazil.

But in addition to being a haven for preterm infants, crochet powder can also be beautiful gift options for babies born at the right time. After all, ensuring a little more peace of mind, security and protection does not hurt anyone, does it?

However, to be safe for babies, crochet powders must be made with 100% cotton yarns and the tentacles can not be more than 22 centimeters. The stitches should also not be wide open to prevent the baby from holding his little fingers. Another important detail is to sterilize the octopus before giving it to the baby.

In case of donations, the hospital itself is responsible for the hygiene. But if it is to give someone a gift or make the octopus to sell, it is important to recommend sterilizing the octopus by washing it in hot water at least 60º. All these guidelines are important to ensure safe use of octopus by babies and ensure that they can make the most of this experience.
