We want to inspire you to get crafty with your get-togethers, and share some yarncrafts that would be perfect for a small tea party or a large street party!

Tea Party Yarn Food!
What's a tea party without tea and cake? This collection of patterns will make for a pretty tea party even after the food is long gone!
Strawberries and Cream Teas Cosy - Patti Di Cagli
We love a good tea cosy, and this strawberries and cream one is perfect for an outdoor tea party - keep your tea warm and your table pretty with this beautiful free knitting pattern!
Birthday Cake - Amanda Berry
If you have a big celebration coming up, but want to save on some calories, then this birthday cake is just perfect! It would make a stunning centre piece at a party, and can be customised to your liking.
Crocheted Fairy Cakes - Vicky Philips
If you've got little ones to entertain at a an outdoor party then these crochet fairy cakes double up as cute decorations as well as being great for make-believe play!
Crochet Jammy Dodger - Matt Farci
These really do look good enough to eat! We can see a plate of these look fabulous on any tea party table.
Mr Champus Bottulus - Loopsapn
This amigurumi bottle of champagne is really fun, and a great addition to any celebration - it would make a great novelty gift too!
Yarn Decorations for a Street Party
It doesn't take much to spruce up a party with some fun bunting and decorations, these yarn patterns will help bring your street party to life!
Ice Cream Pom Pom Garland - Lia Griffith
Nothing says summer better than ice cream, so whatever you're celebrating this summer, this ice cream bunting is super easy to put together and you can grab some Pom Pom Makers HERE
Flower Crochet Bunting - Crafternoon Treats
If you would like something a little less novel, and little more quaint, then this pattern by Crafternoon Treats is simply lovely.
Crochet Sunflower Bouquet - Kamila Krawka Krawczyk
If you're looking for some flowers to add to the table, this bunch of sunflowers would brighten anyone's day - they are made with our favourite YarnArt Jeans
Amigurumi Balloons - Planet June
We really love the idea of crochet balloons (they can't blow away or frighten anyone with a loud bang!) and they're also a lot better for the environment - what's not to love?!
Pizza Garland - Twinkie Chan
And finally, we love a little bit of novelty - this pizza garland is just crying out for a pizza party to go to! Any takers?
Jubilee Yarn Crafts
If you are planning a Jubilee Street Party this June, then this collection of patterns is sure to get you inspired!
Pom Pom Sparklers - Sugar Bee Crafts
This is another really simple yarn craft that the kids can join in with and is a great way to use up any scraps of yarn. You can use any colour yarn you like.
Street Party Knitted Tea Cosy - Lorraine Hearn
If you want something really patriotic for you street party, then this tea cosy is it! It may look complex but if you know your yarn forward and your yarn back, knit and purl stitches you will be fine.
Queens Corgi - Hannah Joyce
Part of a WI project, this Corgi is being knitted and hidden around local communities for people to find, keep or donate - you can find the pattern and all the info at the link.
Union Jack Pattern - Emma Heywood
This Union Jack pattern can be used on for multiple different yarn projects. You'll find examples of jumpers, cushions, throws and more on the Ravelry website link.
Celebrate in style
What do you wear to a street party? It feels a bit casual for full on party attire, but we think these headbands and fun alternatives might just be what you need.
Crochet Crown - Tales of Butterflies
If you're going for a royal theme, then these crochet crowns are super quick to make and I'm sure could be enhanced with some craft jewels or buttons (these pearl ones perhaps?)
Pom Pom Headband - Kollabora
Whether it's a street party, or a festival you're off to, why not try making a pom pom headband! You can find the headband on our website and simply tie on your own pom poms (or use a hot glue gun to secure in place)
Winnie the Pooh and Friends Ear Collection - Ollie Holly
If you are up for some fancy dress, then these Winnie the Pooh inspired ear crochet patterns are adorable! You can find all the free patterns on the website plus some other paid patterns on the Etsy shop.
Daisy Chain headband - Frankie Brown
And finally, we love these daisies by Frankie Brown. They are made so that they can be looped together - you could either attach them to a headband, or make them into a necklace (just be careful with little ones wearing something like this)
And there you have it, a fabulous selection of yarn crafts to keep you busy for all the street parties and celebrations you'll be part of this summer!
