It is possible to add beads to a knitting project to embellish it, create a pattern or add some twist to lace…
You will need : your knitting project, beads (here, miyuki 8/0), a small hook to fit in the beads hole (for miyuki, it means a hook smaller than 1 mm).
Knit as indicated in the pattern until you reach the stitch on which you want to add a bead.
Put a bead on the hook.
Catch the stitch with the hook and slip the bead on the stitch with the hook.
Replace stitch on left needle. Careful ! With the bead the stitch is tight on the needle.
Work the stitch as it appears : knit for knit, purl for purl.
