Beaded Knitting Prestrung Knitted through Stitches

One can actually knii a prestrung bead through the actual stitch. After inserting the needle into the stitch, as you wrap rhe yarn around the needle, snuggle ihe bead up to the junction between the two needles, then knit both rhe yarn and bead through rhc stitch. 1 have found that using the left index finger (knitting) or rhe left thumb (purling) helps to push the bead through when you're working the stitch. Notice how the bead can fall to either the right or wrong side of rhe fabric. This is...

Beaded Knitting Prestrung atop Slip Stitches

This method employs slipped stitches, with die yarn to the right side of the work. Each head is pushed up to the knitting, where it lies on the strand of yarn as a float atop the slipped stitch. The stitch that the bead sits on top of is not knitted bui slipped instead. Always slip as if to purl. The bead sits on top of the unknitted stitch on the floated strand of yarn. Thus, on the wrong side of stockinette stitch or die purl side , bring the yarn to the back when a bead is desired, slip the...

Beaded Knitting Hoisted atop Stitches

Ethereal Lace Tunic, Bogus Bohus Cardigan Hoisting heads atop stitches is one of my favorite methods of getting beads on knitting. I adapted the technique from machine knitting. It requires no pre-stringing, vet it is an integral part of the fabric. An unstrung bead is hoisted atop a whole stitch. 1 use a special little latch hook called the American Beadle, which is actually a needle with a wooden handle used on a hosiery machine. You can also use any small, steel crochet hook meant for fine...

Bead Knitting Prestrung Knitted through Stitches

Bead Knitting

As described in Chapters I and 4, true Bead Knitting, with stockinette stitch as its base, entails two premises that a bead is actually worked through all stitches, and that every stitch is subsequently secured on the following row by working through its back loop. There is an inherent problem with this ailover bead fabric. As in the needlepoint that ir emulates, the fabrics nature is ro bias or torque. To alleviate this tendency, you can alternate the twist ol the stitch with each row....
