Worm On A Hat Hook Crochet Pattern For Father's Day!

Hello! It's almost the end of the school year, so that means that Father's Day is soon! My dad loves to fish and I was wondering what to make him. The Fishing Bobber/Floaty that I made him, was a big hit with him for Christmas a couple of years ago and I wanted to make him something else that was fishing inspired. The Fishing Bobber/Floaty is a free pattern and you can find it here. After some thinking and brainstorming with Sean, I came up with the idea for a worm on a hat hook. I think it turned out super cute and I'm sharing it as a free pattern, just don't show my dad! I haven't gave him his yet! :) Scroll down for the free pattern. 

Worm On A Hat Hook


With size g hook and medium worsted weight yarn, the worm is approximately 2.5 inches long.


Size G (4.0 mm) crochet hook
Medium 4 Worsted Weight Yarn (Red Heart Super Saver)
Darning needle
Safety eyes
White felt
Stitch marker
Hat hook


ch: chain
sc: single crochet
st: stitch

 The Pattern

Pattern is worked in a spiral. Use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of each round.

R1: Make a loose slip knot, ch 1 and put 6 sc into the loose slip knot. Pull on the tail end to close the hole. =6
R2: sc in each st around. =6
Weave in the end and turn right side out.

R3-4: sc in each st around. =6
Use the white felt to cut a small circle. Make it a little larger than the safety eye. Cut a hole in the middle and put the safety eye through the hole in the felt. Attach the eyes to the worm.

R5-11: sc in each st around. =6
Cut the yarn, pull through the last stitch and thread through a darning needle. Thread through the front loops of the remaining stitches. Pull tight to close the hole. Knot and weave in the end.
Insert the hook through the bottom of the worm to attach it to the hat hook.

The End!
