Hand Knitting with Beads

Adding beads to your knitting This technique is used
in the
Openwork Choker Pattern

You will need:
  • Beads with a large enough hole through which 2 strands of your chosen knitting yarn will pass easily

  • 1 Crochet hook small enough to pass through the hole in the beads


Stop knitting before the stitch on which you want to place the bead

Thread the bead on to the crochet hook

Remove the 'beading' stitch from the needle with the crochet hook

Draw the stitch through the bead

Return the stitch on the crochet hook to the left-hand needle
