softie pattern, but there's still love to go around and today we're sharing some with this adorable knitted bird mobile pattern. Oh, and did we mention it's a free pattern? This seems like the perfect pregnancy project since you could do a bird every few weeks and then piece it all together when you're in full-on nesting mode. The pattern creator, Meg Bakewell, points out that this is a great way to use up yarn remnants since you need only small amounts of different colors. If you're not in need of a mobile you could make just the birds and hang them on your Christmas tree or on a doorknob.
