If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have seen that I made it to the lace edging on my Olive Garden Shawl – which means beads!
I’ve never done beads before but it was one of my goals for last year. I know, sometimes I arrive late to the party but hey, at least I got here! The bead rows definitely slow down the speed quite a bit but I think the end result is totally worth it.
Here’s how I’ve been doing it: Work the stitch to be beaded and place the bead on the world’s tiniest crochet hook.
Remove the stitch from the right hand needle with the hook and slide the bead onto the stitch.
Return the stitch to the right hand needle.
Pretty simple! Have you ever knit with beads before? Share your projects with me in the comments!
