I received a beautiful necklace made from ladder ribbon with a fused glass pendant. There is no crochet.It appears to be 5-6 strands of yarn that maybe were twisted. Then 6-8 inches of 5 strands of yarn knotted and a bead at the top knot to adjust the length. Anyone with directions?

To make a "non-crocheted" ladder ribbon necklace just purchase some "ladder ribbon" (Trellis Ladder Yarn by Lion Brand Yarns is not manufactured any longer and too expensive on e-bay) at Creative Fiber Arts or Numei. You'll need to iron the yarn because it is usually twisted on the skein. Then find an item (like a box or picture frame) that you can use to wrap it around that will be the length that you want. Cut one end and use some ribbon to gather and sew all the ribbon and cut the other end if you want or not - depending on the type of of neck scarf you want.
I personally think the crocheted necklaces are prettier, especially if they are adjustable like mine are: http://www.cjscrochetednecklaces.com I've even added pendants and earrings and they are stunning.
I am looking for directions for jewelry making with ladder yarn that does not require crocheting.

Not sure what ladder yarn is; is this the same as finger weaving with yarn? If it is I would also like some patterns, and not just for jewelry.
I bought a trellis ribbon necklace at a craft fair that was not crocheted. It had many strands that just laid flat and the back seemed to have been secured with wrapped thread. All the patterns I can find are crocheted. Any idea how this was made?
Cyinda showed a picture of a lovely ruffled necklace using trellis yarn. I can't figure it out, so if it's possible to give more detailed instructions I would really appreciate it.

What is trellis yarn and where can I purchase it?
By suziemb from Columbus
Trellis yarn is a is a "shimmering lacy ladder ribbon yarn"
made by Lion Brand yarns but it has been discontinued.
You might still find it in yarn shops possibly. Amazon.com has some from other sellers:

or on eBay:

I also saw it listed at joann.com but their site is down for the moment:
Do any of the Thrifty Fun community members know where I can get free trellis and ladder crochet necklace patterns?

I know how to make the basic slip bead necklace. I would like your direction on the other methods with the elastic and plastic, then also the one that is pictured with all the different lengths.
Thrifty Fun has been around so long that many of our pages have been reset several times. Archives are older versions of the page and the feedback that was provided then.
I am new to the site and am trying to find patterns to knit or crochet necklaces out of Trellis yarn or similar types. I am also looking for patterns to make them without being knit or crocheted. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Happy Holidays.

I saw a necklace made out of Trellis ladder yarn and cannot figure out how to make it. Does anyone know?
By atph from NY
There's a second type that's made by single crocheting around a piece of clear elastic. OR, a third type that's made by threading the clear beading elastic thread on to a "big eye" beading needle then thread every 2, 3 or 4 empty square on to the elastic (skipping every other or every 2 or 3 "holes"). They can either be threaded on straight (accordion style) or the Trellis yarn can be twisted in a spiral with every empty square that's threaded.
For more details write me here on ThriftyFun. Cyinda Here's a picture of the necklace made by the #2 or #3 method. (07/03/2009)
At a craft fair last fall I saw a vendor with necklaces and earrings made from the trellis (also called ladder) ribbon yarns. I went back to buy some in a couple of hours and they were sold out. The vendor was selling them for her sister and did not know the pattern instructions and I can't remember them well enough to make them look right. I have found patterns for the necklaces, but not the earrings. Can anyone help?
