Emily Explains: Knitting with Beads (as you go)

For this week’s how-to video, I’m showing you a new way to knit with beads. I was motivated to learn this technique when I was putting together next week’s KnitBits. It features a soon-to-be-released free pattern in Cirrus that I’ve been eyeing in the design office for months now! I can’t wait for all of you to see it, too.

Since I know you’ll be eager to cast on, I’m sharing my tutorial ahead of time. This technique uses a strand of fine yarn, wire or plain floss to literally thread the bead onto your desired stitch. It is really very simple. Ready to see how it’s done? Take a look at the video below:

Not sure if this is the method for you? We have another video that shows you how to add beads that are pre-strung onto your yarn. Check it out:

You can add beads to any knitting project to give it a little bit of holiday sparkle.

Happy Making!
