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

I love how she provided two different ways of adding beads and we could clearly see how the different techniques provide slightly different results. Pre-stringing shows the bead on the right side while adding mid-project shows the bead on both sides. Thank you for this quick and easy tutorial!
