They’re all super easy to work up, and even if you’re new to crochet, you can totally make these!

- Bulky yarn in Black. Suggested: Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky – Black 100% Acrylic.
- Crochet hook that fits your yarnI used a G/6 (4 mm) hook.
- A darning needle
- A pair of scissors
- Googly eyes (8-10 mm) in white or Doll Glass Eye Beads. You can see several options for Worry Worm Eyes here.
- For the whiskers (optional), a strand of white yarn or twine.
- Good light source: working with black yarn can be difficult if you’re not crocheting in a place with good lighting. Make sure you’re sitting in a well-lit area or have a lamp shining onto your project. You could also test this pattern with a lighter-colored yarn first.

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.
