FATW6 – Adventures in Mosaic Crochet – Garden Theme – Strip 14 – Peaks & Pillars by Erin Toews and Zig Zag Border by Moira Douglas

Strip 14 is Peaks and Pillars by Erin Toews of Juniper and Oakes. It is a classic design that will end our garden themed blanket. It is an overlay mosaic pattern and comes with written instructions, a chart, and a video. When you have completed this final strip you can add your border with the Zig Zag Border pattern from Moira Douglas of daisyknots. It is the “official” border for our FATW6 CAL of all three themes.

You have entered the garden in your fancy attire, taken in the beauty that surrounds you, inhaled the pleasant perfume of the flowers and heard the buzzing and fluttering of the creatures around you. Your mouth watered at the delicacies set forth for you. Your company was pleasant and a good time was had by all.! We have reached the end of the CAL, your last step is to gaze into the mountains far ahead and embrace the joy and beauty you have experienced. When you are done be sure to share your beautiful photos on our Facebook group.

Please read the bio from Erin Toews below completely and carefully. All links to the Peaks and Pillars pattern are in bio, use blog link to go directly to pattern. If you wish to download it from Ravelry you will need to use the coupon code provided to get it for free.

Erin Toews : Juniper & Oakes

I am a wife, mom to 2 wild boys and 1 sweet baby girl, Christian, friend, nurse, crocheter, hiker, reader, & drinker of coffee or hot tea while doing any of those activities. I grew up in the Black Hills of South Dakota, and right now we are nestled in at the foothills of the Smoky Mountains in East Tennessee, so you could say that the mountains are a bit of an influence in some of my crochet pieces.

I started crocheting when I was just a kid, maybe 8 years old. My mother would teach me, and then I would forget, and she’d teach me again. In high school, a good friend of mine started a crochet club and since then I have not put down my hook! I’ve made hats with my residence hall to give away to cancer patients; I’ve made baby blankets for all of my nieces & nephews; and now I am designing my own patterns for sale.

My patterns are mostly home decor items like wall hangings, pillows, and afghans. I believe your home should make you feel cozy and at ease. I create pieces that bring comfort and invite conversation.

I like to challenge myself to try new things (new foods, new activities, new crochet techniques) so when I heard about the opportunity to design a mosaic crochet pattern, I said “YES!” without really thinking about it. I have never crocheted a mosaic pattern before, let alone designed one! This pattern stretched me mentally as a pattern designer, and it is also inspiring me to create more mosaic crochet patterns that I hope to release soon.

These are the strips from our Makers. As with all of the patterns, not only can you use pattern for the main blanket, but you can also work it as a separate blanket. Thank you to our Makers for all they have done! Their beautiful photos certainly enticed more of you to join in.

As you have seen throughout the CAL each of the three themes used the same border from Moira Douglas of daisyknots. There are directions for the zig zag pattern as well as plain and there are video links if you need more of a visual.

Here are the two blankets our marvelous Maker Mary, has made using 7 strips on each one to use all 14 strips. One blanket uses the Zig Zag Border and the other blanket uses the non patterned border version. (You will find the link at the end of this post.) It is all a matter of personal choice. Both blankets are absolutely stunning, her choice of colors and workmanship are superb. Her recipients are quite lucky and blessed to be getting these as gifts.

Thank you all again for participating in our FATW6 CAL. Whatever your role, help or participation was, it is greatly appreciated. A very special Thank you and HUGE amount of appreciation to Silke Karp for the behind-the-scenes work with all of the files. With 41 patterns, it definitely took a lot of valuable time. In between that, she was a Maker as well and her photos have been included in these CAL posts.

It has been a pleasure!


Farewell! The garden party is over. Enjoy your season, in whatever weather you are experiencing.
