Pumpkin Worry Worm Crochet Pattern
By (designer) Start Crochet
Crochet worry worms became a real hit when a FB Group called “Random Acts of Crochet Kindness” came up with the idea to distribute these simple crochet worry worms with a poem packaged in a small see-through plastic baggie or organza bag anywhere you can think of… in the woods, playground, nursing home, school, camping area… wherever.
Printable Poems can be found on my blog:

I designed some more themed Worry Worms that you could use throughout the year for different seasons/occasions. Have a look at these new Worry Worm designs as well (in the link above)l
These cute crochet worry worms are meant to put a smile on whoever finds them and comfort them in times of sorrow or stress.
The idea of these worry worms is to go out of one’s way to make another person smile. It builds a sense of community in kind acts, and attempts to make the world a bit lighter and brighter!
The best thing about these crochet worry worms is that they are super easy and fast to whip up, which make them ideal projects for beginner crocheters.
Now that autumn is approaching, I want to show you how to crochet themed worry worms for the upcoming Halloween season.
These worry worms are also super simple to make and will definitely put big smiles on little faces!
Not only will you feel accomplished when you’ve created a few of these, you’ll also feel great about yourself when you actually go out and hide them around your neighbourhood for people to find them and brighten up their day
