Placing beads in knitting

I've made quite a few shawls with beads in and I've tried various methods on how to add the beads. I used a crochet hook when I made Moroccan Days/Arabian Nights and it took AGES!

Then I read a blog post on using a needle and thread instead. It was very fiddly and difficult at first until I got going and got used to doing it, then I found it a lot faster!

My friend, Megan, asked me if I could make a tutorial to show her how it's done and here it is.

Please excuse the quality of the video, but an iPhone 4 is the best video camera we've got LOL


  1. Thank you! This is great :-D

  2. Thanks for the tutorial. I'm totally bookmarking it for future use. I've got a project in mind.

    Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
