Tuesday’s Knitting Tip – How to Add a Bead to a Knit Stitch

Share Button

This week’s knitting tip comes from knitwear designer Laura Nelkin.

Ever wonder how to add beads to your knitting? In this video I teach you a trick for adding beads easily with either a crochet hook OR a piece of Super Floss!

Adding beads to your knitting gives it weight, flare and a bit of bling. You can take a simple design and really help it shine! I’ll be coming to WEBS to teach for my first time later this month and look forward to sharing more of my beading techniques with you all…can’t wait!

If you’re interested in learning more about how to knit with beads, Laura will be teaching two classes in a couple weeks at our store. Follow the links below to find out more.

    can you thread the beads on your yarn before you start knitting?

    Where can you get Super Floss?

  • Laura Nelkin

     Hi!  I think there is still room in both classes… perhaps give Webs a call?  I’d love to meet you!

  • Laura Nelkin

     You can.. but they will act differently.  I’ll be teaching this technique in my classes at Webs later in April!

     Hi Isobel!

    Super Floss is available in the dental floss section of your grocery or drug store… it’s right next to the toothbrushes!
