Snowman Worry Worm
Are you looking for a small snowman to crochet? One that’s a quick make and has the added benefit of helping to relieve stress, anxiety & depression? Meet Winston, the Snowman Snuggler! He’s your tiny Christmas friend that’ll be more than happy to take away any worries you may have this time of the year. Just hold him tight, twirl him around with your fingers and feel the stress melt away 🙂
You can use this little Snowman Worry Worms as:
- stocking stuffers for kids,

- Calming tools in classrooms,
- Nursing home giveaways, or
- you could hide them out & about for people to find during the festive season. I’ve designed some cute little tags for you to include with your worry worm act of kindness.

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.
14 stitches and 8 rows = 10 cm in double 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 or shorter, just increase/decrease the number of stitches in your body chain.
This Snowman Worry Worm measures approx. 5.5 “ (14 cm) in height including the hat.
Weight: Approximately 9 g
Yardage: Approximately 15 yards
– 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 parentheses) indicate the number of final stitches in that row.
– [ … ] means the contents inside these brackets will be repeated.
– I wrote this pattern using the joining rounds method. You are welcome to work the head section in continuous rounds if you wish (I advise using a stitch marker in this case).
– Ch 1 at the end of each round does not count as a stitch.
– Please note that I use US crochet terms.
