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 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.
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.

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.
Has anyone been able to find a pattern for crocheted trellis earrings?
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.
I saw a necklace made out of Trellis ladder yarn and cannot figure out how to make it. Does anyone know?
