Skill Level

Intermediate. Knowledge of how to crochet a Magic Circle is ideal. If you don’t know how to start with a MC, then simply start with a ch 2, then work R 1 into the second ch from your hook.


17 stitches and 16 rows = 10 cm in single crochet

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 Gnome Worry Worm measures approx. 6.2 “ (16 cm) in height including the head & hat.


Weight: 9 gms

Yardage: Approximately 24.8 yards (22.7 meters).


– You can use any type of yarn as long as you have a corresponding crochet hook size (check yarn label for recommendations).

– 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.

– I wrote this pattern using 2 methods of working in the round. I used the joining rounds method for the head and the continuous round method for the hat. You are welcome to work both in either joining rounds or continuous rounds if you wish (I advise using a stitch marker in either case).

– Ch 1 at the end of each round does not count as a stitch.

– Please note that I use US crochet terms.

    This pattern is so easy to “WIP” up. It was fun to create and took me about an hour to complete. The pattern is well written and very easy to follow with photos to help. The Gnome was a hit with my son. He brings it to school to fidgit with.
