Easy And Free Worry Worm Crochet Pattern With PDF

Save for later

We love our little worry worm crochet pattern. If you are beginner crocheters, this is the perfect pattern for you.

This was a great way for me to practice my slip stitch, single crochet and double crochet stitches when I first started. I made over 30 of them for Christmas, and they made great gifts to give on top of our baked goods we do every year. 

The PDF pattern below includes specific instructions for the worry worm along with the tags.  They include photos and a video tutorial of some of the stitches. 

Crochet Supplies:

  • 5 mm crochet hook size
  • Worsted weight yarn

First thing you need to do is make a slip knot and chain 20–30 stitches. The longer you go, the longer your fun crochet worry worms will be.  This is a simple way to make the length different and make each adorable crochet worry worm unique. 

Next you want to do 6 single crochet stitches (sc) in each hole moving from right to left.  In the last hole, you are going to do 10 double crochet stitches (dc) until you close up the face. 

Thirdly, you want to Sl st in the same stitch. Don’t forget to fasten off and weave in your ends. 

Finally, you want to attach your worry worm eyes. I use googly eyes I got off Amazon. If you are giving it to a young child under the age of 5 you will want to use safety eyes or simply use some black yarn and make eyes.  This will help finish off their cute little faces.

Just like that you have finished your crochet worry worm project. Simply print off the worry worm poem and give as a gift or place on your desk or side table to remind you that you can let go of your stress and not carry it around with you. 

These worry worms also make great fidget toys especially for special need kids who carry big emotions on their shoulders or secretly do a little act of kindness by placing the worry worms around town and let people find them. That is actually how this crochet inspiration started by Olivia Dieterich. 

I placed the finished ones in a small see-through plastic baggie or organza bag with the poem cut down to fit inside the bag. If you happen to sell at a local craft show, these sell really well. 

These are super easy projects that made the most adorable crochet worry worm. These little creatures remind us to not carry our stress. The worm pattern has photos and a video to help walk you through the pattern. 

Just so you know as you start to crochet you will get a cute curly texture. You want to create a springy little crocheted worm. That is created from the SC in each hole. PS if you end up with 1 extra or one less, it’s totally fine, your simple crochet worry worms will still turn out. This worm pattern is very forgiving. 

I can’t wait to see the different variations of your adorable crochet worry worms. Remember to simply have fun as you start crochet patterns and that there is no such thing as a perfect finished pattern.  Perfection steals our joy.
