Inside – The Garden Lattice Crochet Pattern is Part 8 of the Mosaic in a Month Blanket CAL. Use this free crochet pattern to work up this square inspired section as part of your blanket, or use it to create something different!


This June, Erin from Juniper & Oakes is hosting a lovely collaborative CAL – the Mosaic in a Month Blanket. This blanket features geometric designs using the overlay mosaic crochet technique. I promise it’s easier than it looks! My section is Part 8 – Garden Lattice. In this blog post, you will find the free crochet chart and written instructions for the Garden Lattice Overlay Mosaic Crochet Pattern. Happy creating!

Inspiration for the Garden Lattice Design

Erin put out the designer call for this blanket at the beginning of the year. Since I loved being a part of her previous blanket CALs – Nordic C2C Blanket, and Nordic Mosaic Blanket – I jumped at the chance to design for this one. However, only one problem persisted… the prompt was “geometric shapes” and I couldn’t think of anything beyond diagonals and zig zags. Womp, womp.

Honestly, I assumed that designing with geometric shapes would be easy peasy. But, it proved pretty difficult. Every time I stepped up to the sketch pad, I kept drawing out diagonal shapes. My previous design (in the Nordic Mosaic Blanket) was based on diagonals – Skadi Hills. As much as I loved those zig zags, I wanted to explore a different shape. So, I sent a quick message to Erin about my lack of inspiration, and asked her if there were any shapes that the blanket needed. Surprise, surprise… she said “squares”. So, I started designing a pattern based on the square.

First, I placed the big rectangles through the middle of the pattern. Then, I added the checkered bits on top and bottom. The garden didn’t inspire this pattern into creation, but once I finished it, I knew what it reminded me of – decorative lattice bordering a garden. The best part – designing this pattern got the creative juices flowing to start working on my own overlay mosaic blanket. Stayed tuned for that one!
