Finger Puppet Googly Eyes Worry Worm
Crochet Pattern PDF
Using Finger Puppet Eyes in crochet projects is the latest craze in many FB groups at the moment!
A lot of people are using them for Random Acts of Kindness making small projects with these funny little Finger Puppet Googly Eyes to leave out & about for some lucky people to find.
Most who’ve made worry worms with these kinds of eyes tend to crochet around the ‘nose’ section of the Finger Puppet Eyes.
That’s one way of doing it, but I thought I’d show you another way you could use these Finger Puppet Eyes on Worry Worms with Amigurumi-style heads where you hide the ‘nose’ section altogether and all you see is those funny large eyes popping out of the worry worm’s head!
Meet Wiggly Wilbur (your new fidget friend)! You can use him as gifts for children in classrooms, therapy centers, or hospitals, for instance. You could also leave your wiggly worry worms out & about in playgrounds, in the forest or any place really for people to find & make their day!
If you have any questions, you can ask them in the Start Crochet FB Group where you will surely get the help you’re looking for.

It’s also a bit tricky to work through the ‘nose’ section of the finger puppet eyes to hold it in place, so it could be a little challenging if you’re a beginner crocheter.
16 stitches and 8 rows = 4″ (10 cm) in double crochet (US).
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.
If your Worry Worm looks narrow or not as full as you anticipated, try a heavier weight yarn. If you want your Worry Worm to be longer, just increase the number of stitches in your body chain.
This Worry Worm measures about 4.7 “ (12 cm) in height (including Finger Puppet Eyes).
10 gm (including Finger Puppet Eyes)
8 gm (without eyes)
Yardage: Approximately 14.6 yards (13.4 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.
– You can make the pattern larger or smaller by changing the type of yarn and/or hook size.
– Numbers at the end of each row (in brackets) indicate the number of final stitches in that row.
– Head is worked in continuous rounds (stitch marker use advised).
