The Octopussy Teether

Crochet Teethers

I love making, giving away and selling teethers. They are so comforting for babies when they start teething. Chewing on them gives them relief.

This teether has an extra benefit, the octopussy tentacles! The soft tentacles will remind babies of the umbilical cord and their mother’s womb which might work comforting. Plus they’re great to play with!

For this teether I used 20 grams of Durable double four. My favourite 100% cotton yarn. It comes in the most beautiful colours and I love working with it.
