Beading a knit gives so many beautiful results and can turn an ordinary knit into a gem! To bead a stitch, you can use a small crochet or use the following method.

Here is an easy way to bead your stitches using a small wire commonly known as "tiger tail" that you will normally find in the jewelry making section.

First step: cut a piece of wire (about 10 cm) and fold it in half. Make sure the fold is squeezed tight to be the thinnest possible

Step two: slip the bead stitch on your wire so that the stitch is in the middle of the wire in the crease:

Insert both ends of the wire into the hole of the bead.

Slip the bead down until the stitch passes through the bead ... Put the needle back on the left needle and knit it:

That's it, easy! If you can not get "tiger tail", you can use fishing line or any thread hard enough to put on a bead. 

You can also use a hook but the trouble is that the hooks small enough to enter the hole of a pearl are usually too small to catch the yarn completely which will result in splitting the strands of the yarn .. but as each knitting style, each yarn and each knitter is unique, it is necessary to "bead" to find the method that suits you !!

Happy knitting!
