Crochet mobiles aren't just for babies - I have a mobile that I was gifted hanging in my own room. And my older kids have some they love too. They're calming, decorative, and a lovely bright touch in dark corners. I hope this roundup of mobile crochet patterns has inspired you! If you don't see one here to fit the theme you have in mind, get creative! Find small amigurumi or applique patterns that you like and hang those - and make something to treasure forever.

The Lorenz Manifold is stunning but just reading the instructions is making my head spin!
I love these patterns but I find it very disappointing that several of the ones sent via email in the last few months aren't available. The websites or whatever have either moved or been taken away.
Meme which ones have been taken away? The ones that go out in the email are the newest posts, if links aren't working please let me know!
https://www.mooglyblog.com/crochet-mobiles-free-patterns/ This is the url I had to find as I had deleted the email with the suggest 10 Free Mobiles to dress up a room.
Of course this wasn't the only one. If I like one I kept it but after that I deleted them especially if the link didn't go through. The particular one I like was a spiral jobbie and I did find it by searching for it and strangely it actually came up this time. Not that, that helped. That is so technical. I left all that math behind many years ago. Even my husband said he'd have to go back to school to remember what the equations were. The crochet instructions were pages down and even then weren't that understandable. Very disappointing since it look fantastic.
If and when I have problems with a link I'll let you know straight away and keep the email. Thanks for listening Meme
I'm afraid I'm rather confused. The https://www.mooglyblog.com/crochet-mobiles-free-patterns/ url didn't work for you? Are you getting daily email to your inbox or an RSS feed? The link to the Lorenz Manifold wasn't working at first? It's a PDF, so those can take a little longer to load. I try to offer patterns at a variety of difficulty levels, so not every pattern will suit every person. Are you maybe clicking on the photos? The photos aren't links - you have to click the name of the pattern, in blue, to go to the pattern.
Yes the link wasn't working on all the mobiles and I was getting error messages. They were working when I looked up the link again as in the swirly one which is difficult sounding. I was clinking on the link not the photo. Thanks for your help anyway Tamara.
Oh my. I think this is my favorite collection of yours. 🙂 I used to have several mobiles hanging around my home, but the years and moves took their toll, and there's not one left. Thanks for the patterns and inspiration. 🙂
Thanks so much Mitzi!
I'm lovin' these mobiles! Thanks for sharing the inspiration. Our blog offers free crochet patterns. Let us know if there are any you would like to feature and we can keep the PDF's uploaded for free!

I love this collection and 2 of my friends have newborns!
I'd really like to get the pattern for number 7 the Lorenz Manifold. I cant find the pattern on the website (clicking on name) goes too maybe its been removed? Do you have a copy?
It was a while ago now so not surprised that I cant see it - that or im looking right at it and not seeing it.
Any help appreciated.
Number 6 is no longer on their website, just a heads up.
it has been over a yr since this was posted though.
Thanks for all the hard work you do!
Thank you Allison, I've updated the post!
Your welcome 🙂
Any luck with number 7?
Looks like it's just gone for now, unfortunately.
I might try and get hold of her through the uni.
I'm actually working on the hyperbolic crochet reef for the Sunshine Coast in QLD, Aust atm and would like to try a version of their mobile pattern.
Thanks for all that you do in researching and finding patterns for us!
I clicked on the name for number 7 and it took me to a ravelry page and it has a link for a pdf doc that will open in your browser and you can save the doc there's about 30 pages and the pattern starts on page 23.
I was only going to get the link for the pic to show a friend so lucky me yay!!
