Today, let’s learn how to Knit Beads into any project!

This knitting technique works great for pretty much any knit stitch pattern. Simply using a crochet hook, this is a really easy way to quickly add beads to your work.

It looks great on lots of knitting projects. What knitting project do you plan to take to the next level by adding beads?

PLACEMENT OF KNIT BEADS IN YOUR WORK

VERTICAL PLACEMENT: Using this technique, you can see the bead placement has the top and bottom of your beads inserted vertically into your work.

REVERSIBLE PLACEMENT: This technique also allows your beads to be placed within your stitches. This allows the beads to be reversible, so you will see them exactly the same on both the right and wrong sides of your work.

My example is using the following materials:
