12 Crochet Moth Patterns

Moths are divisive critters – people tend to either love them or really hate them. We don’t view moths with the same affection as their day-flying cousins, and the irrational fear of moths is even common enough to have a name: mottephobia. Fear not, these crochet moth patterns wouldn’t do any harm. In fact, do you have any idea how varied and beautiful they could be?

Once completed, these projects can either be toys, worn as an accessory such as a brooch or hair decoration, or they can be mounted in a frame or bell jar for display. You will be admiring these little creatures in no time.
