Today’s pattern lookup request is for free worry worm crochet patterns. When I was little we used to have these crochet worms that we used as bookmarks. They did however have a longer chained tail and sometimes were made to look like a little snake with a felt tongue!

These spiral worms are simple projects that can be made quickly. They are also fantastic beginner projects and make great gifts for children and adults as they can serve multiple purposes.

Besides using them for bookmarks, you can also use them like ‘worry stones’ and ‘worry dolls’ and ‘fidget toys’. They give you something to hold onto and to play with in your hands. Pulling on the springy little crocheted worm can be comforting and calming.

These friendly yarn worms are the perfect size to fit into your pocket and this makes it easy to send them with your child to school. The can use these worms quietly and even keep them hidden. This may help them calm their worries and overwhelming emotions. Worry worms can be a simple tool for calming anxieties.

Some of the patterns available online also provide little cards you can print out to attach to your worry worms. This makes them great for craft shows too and for leaving in random places for those in need to pick up.
