Marly Bird shares tried-and-true techniques for adding beads to single crochet. You will not only learn how to pre-string beads to add to your work as you go, but also how to add beads spontaneously right onto the stitch. Marly demonstrates her beading techniques on worsted weight yarn and large pony beads, but you can use this technique with any yarn gauge and bead—as long as your crochet hook and yarn can fit through the bead.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Worsted weight yarn (Marly uses Red Heart Soft)
- Pony beads
- Crochet hooks small enough to go through beads
- Tapestry needle

Straightforward, easy to understand directions on how I can perform the technique.

I NOW understand how the beads are crocheted into the pattern. That technique always frustrated me. Now I understand and can use beads to crochet something to decorate with or wear. Thank you for the how to!
