retro crocheted bookworm - with a green pompom tail!
g: what is it?
me: it's a worm.
g: is it a dr. seuss worm?
me: i guess.
g: it's butt is inflated.
do any of you remember these? probably all the children of the 80's, right? i just remember them being so popular when i was a kid.
when i was making my pom pom garland, g wanted me to make a green pom pom for it. i explained to him that i was going with a sky motif, but he said he still wanted a green pom pom. i made him this bookworm from my childhood to appease him.
to create him:
chain 65, double crochet in third chain from hook, 2 more double crochet in same stitch, 3 double crochets in each of the next 11 stitches. slip stitch to the spiral. weave through excess yarn and trim off. add pom pom tail and google eyes.
