Inside Crochet are delighted to learn that premature babies at Poole Hospital neo-natal unit have a new friend in their incubators as they cuddle up to a crochet octopus. Research from Denmark shows the babies love the tentacles due to their similarity to the umbilical cord, making them feel safer, and the octopus appears to calm them, giving better breathing. The unit is inviting crocheters to make more octopuses in any colour and size. Each will be packed into a special gift bag and offered to parents. Send your octopus to: Poole Hospital NSH Foundation Trust neonatal unit, Longfleet Road, Poole, Dorset BH15 2JB. You can download a pattern here: http://bit.ly/2fo4I7M
