Can't Stop, Won't Stop Yarn Bombing the Garden

Every year when I put up trellises in the garden, I always think that with all the yarn in my house, there has to be something more creative I could come up with. So this year, I'm tackling just that.

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!

  2. 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. Thanks

    1. 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.

    1. I use acrylic yarn. Lasts for quite a while. My first trellis is on it's 6th year, and looks the same!
