Welcome to the forum, Iafte!
Maybe I missed it from the original poster - is there a reason to use grommets instead of a D-ring or something?

IMPOSSIBLE JUST TAKES LONGER
It is made like below so I can run a line through the open section and tie that off. Main reason for this is I don't own hiking poles yet.

Review the tarp market....
Many low end, entry level or in expensive poly tarps use grommets....
Almost every specialty manufacturer, upper end level, UL tarp maker ( save one?) uses GG, or GG and D rings or, or light weight webbing.
Lot of experiance here....Wonder why they take this approach?
Are you trying to use a go cart approach to achieve a race car product?
GG loops are easily sized and positioned to accept hiking poles at the ridge tie outs, or any other point for that matter.
Recommend giving up on adding layers,weight and spending time on the grommet approach....just my 0.02.

it's easy to put a clove hitch on a stick & tie it to a GG loop.

Wow, lots of grommet haters.
Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?
