It started with a knitted pea trellis. I used a drop stitch lace pattern. It's working very well! Then I decided to take things to another dimension. I loved string art as a kid, so I incorporated it into this bean trellis.
Continuing with the string art, this weekend, I completed new tomato cages.
Stay tuned to see how they work out as things grow!
Absolutely awesome! Decorative and functional, love it!!!ReplyDelete
This is the coolest gardening thing I have ever stumbled on. What kind of yarn/rope are you using. Everything always stretches out on me. ThanksReplyDelete
I use either acrylic yarn, or coated gardening twine, depending on the project. The yarn will stretch a little, but tightens back up while drying in the sun. The twine is a little trickier to get tight, but stays tight, and lasts longer.Delete
that is beautiful, do you treat the yarn with something so you can use if next summer ?ReplyDelete
I use acrylic yarn. Lasts for quite a while. My first trellis is on it's 6th year, and looks the same!Delete
Is there a pattern for these.ReplyDelete
I'm afraid not. I am hoping to put together some instructable posts soon though!Delete
I so need the pattern for the drop stitch knit trellis.ReplyDelete
These are amazing ideas! Could you share approximately how tall your bean trellis stakes are and how many holes you used? I'd love to try to recreate something similar this year. When you say you use Acrylic yarn - just standard knitting yarn, or from the hardware store?ReplyDelete
Hi Katie! I just stumbled across this trellis and am in LOVE. I noticed that last year you mentioned maybe getting this pattern posted; have you had any luck? I would love to try it.ReplyDelete
Wondering if there are instructions for this somewhere! It's beautiful! Would love to make it for my peas next year.ReplyDelete
