Question: Non-crocheted Ladder Ribbon Necklace

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: I've even added pendants and earrings and they are stunning.

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 saw a necklace made out of Trellis ladder yarn and cannot figure out how to make it. Does anyone know?

By atph from NY

RE: Crocheting Necklaces Out of Trellis Yarn

It's all done with a large hook (J, K etc) and only chains. Just look at the pictures here and copy one.

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?

By Melodybh from Oak Ridge, TN

RE: Jewelry Made from Trellis Ribbon Yarn

Go to the website and click on Craft Patterns Trellis Yarn. The necklace instructions are $5.00 and you get the earrings pattern for free. That's all I could find. I would love to see photos of the finished product. Maybe you could post some here when you get them done. Good luck. (05/04/2009)
