Crochet a Squiggly Worm

This crochet pattern is super-easy.  I recently a squiggly worm for my 9-year-old grandson, thinking he would be delighted.  Maybe he’s a tad too old.  He just looked at it, and disappeared into his room and his computer, leaving the little worm on the dining room table.  Turns out his cats liked it better than he did.  But this little worm holds promise for younger boys and girls.  And if you don’t get any enthusiasm, tell them it is a cat toy.
