Last week we showcased the first five designs for the Stylecraft Blogstars Garden Party. This week we are delighted to reveal the final four patterns to complete the festivities.

Time for another knitted design with a bonus crochet version from Helen at Josie Kitten. Macaron is a stylish circular cushion pattern which can easily be adjusted to fit different cushion pad sizes. The pattern also includes some ideas for optional edgings and decorations and uses Special DK so there is a myriad of colour combinations you could put together.  Macaron costs £4 and all proceeds from pattern sales will be donated to Myositis UK. The code ‘gardenparty’ will give you 50p off the pattern until the end of May.

We loved Michelle and Anne’s Bargello blanket last year and the ladies from Crochet Between Worlds have revisited the technique in this gorgeous table runner called Twisted Ribbon Bargello. The design uses simple stitches to create an optical illusion of a spiralling ribbon along the length of your table runner in Naturals Organic Cotton. The pattern may be different to anything you’ve done before but read it thoroughly and work stitch by stitch and you’ll create something amazing!

Jane Crowfoot’s amazing sister-in-law, Julie, adored bunting. “Any excuse for a party and Julie would be there with a step ladder and loads of bunting to decorate the room! We lost Julie after a courageous battle with cancer, so I wanted to design something in her memory,” Jane told us. Julie's Bunting is a pretty, floral bunting that features yellow, her favourite colour, in Naturals Bamboo+Cotton. The pattern will be £6.95 with a donation for each sale going to the charity Bowel Cancer UK. 

Last, but by no means least, is a versatile design from Helen at Crystals and Crochet. Lilibet is an elegant placemat and coaster, to add a touch of class to any summer garden party made with Stylecraft Naturals Organic Cotton.  As an alternative, the placemat and or coaster can be mounted to a hoop and used as a hanging mandala. 

We hope you have enjoyed all the Garden Party designs from our fabulous Blogstars and that you can make some for your jubilee celebrations.
