- Googly eyes (8-10 mm) in white or Doll Glass Eye Beads.
- For the whiskers (optional), a strand of white yarn or twine.

Gauge is not really that crucial for this project. Just try experimenting with different hook sizes & different weight yarns to get a gauge you are happy with for the project you are working on.
If your Cat Worry Worm looks narrow or not as full as you anticipated, try a heavier weight yarn. If you want your Cat Worry Worm to be longer, just increase the number of stitches in your body chain.
This Cat Worry Worm measures about 4.7 “ (12 cm) in height.
Weight: 5 gmApproximately 7.4 yards (6.8 meters)
You can use any type of yarn as long as you have a corresponding crochet hook size (check yarn label for recommendations). Best results are with bulkier weight yarns.
