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.
