Here’s a photo of my crocheted version of the bone-eating marine polychaete, Osedax. I don’t have access to a whale skull, so I photographed it with a cow skull. I made this in response to a challenge on the ScienceBlog Deep Sea News.
I’ll write up the pattern and add it to this post later-it was mostly free-form crochet, so the pattern will be more of a suggestion, than detailed instructions. Besides, it’s best to use up scraps of yarn from other projects, to make your own Osedax.
