I am looking for Jazzy metallic creator fiber yarn. What colors does the Jazzy metallic yarn come in?
By Glenda from Tucson, AZ
It comes in 9 colors. You can see them here: www.creativefiberarts.com/
If you can't find it at your local yarn or box craft store, there are lots of places to buy it on line.
The prices are all over the place...plus if you are looking for something with a dye lot, it can be a challenge.
Ebay and Etsy are the traditional choices....usually most reputable, but sometimes higher priced.
I have it on my list try try this site (I haven't yet---can't buy new until I finish the current blankets I am working on) but this site has good prices and what I think is a decent selection.
I'm looking for pattern to make a "neckarf" out of ladder yarn that I've seen for sale on eBay. They are heavier than necklaces, more like a scarf. Thxs.

I would to find a free pattern for ladder yarn earrings. Could someone please help me?
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?
I too, have one of these. I am interested in information about this too. I am thinking the yarn needs to ironed then wrapped around something that will give you the ability to keep it straight and the length uniform. If you learn any more information please let me know.

Does anyone have instructions to make a ladder necklace and earrings?
By Doris Vanderpool from Chula Vista, CA
Trellis yarn is a special type of yarn that is made with rectangular sections of yarn spaced apart and sewn together with thread on each side. It is often used to make jewelry. This is a page about buying yarn for trellis jewelry.
ThriftyFun is one of the longest running frugal living communities on the Internet. These are archives of older discussions.
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.

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 Melody Bressler-Hay from Oak Ridge, TN
Go to the website anythingcrafty.com 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)

I saw a necklace made out of Trellis ladder yarn and cannot figure out how to make it. Does anyone know?
By annette from NY
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.
Here's a picture of the necklace made by the #2 or #3 method. (07/03/2009)
