Preemie octopus

There has been a little flurry of interest in the news recently about providing premature babies with octopus-like comforters. I found a free pattern for one by Deniza’s toys here and set to:

The pattern is really easy to follow (though naturally I did modify it a bit!) and gives you a 25cm long octopus working with double knitting yarn.
If I did it again I might use treble crochet to make the spirals more substantial, but the double crochet ones are in proportion with the body size so that would need some thinking through.
Made in Sirdar snuggly pearls dk turquoise and Hayfield baby sparkle dk little mermaid on a 4mm hook.
