Bead knitting

goodtogo | Posted in General Discussion on

Hi everyone.  This is my first time on a message board so if I commit any really gross errors let me know.  I picked up an old copy (Aug/Sept 1989 No. 24) magazine of Threads at my local Goodwill centre.  I would like to know how to “bead knit” or perhaps apply beads to a needlepoint canvas.  Has anyone done this type of work?  Any ideas as to how or where or whom to contact for instructions on how to do this.  I have checked the local library and book stores – nada, zip etc.  Any suggestions – let me know.  Thanks.

    there are a ton of books available on this subject - a search on amazon.com of "knitting with beads" will bring up several books.  For applying beads to wearables or needlepoint do a search on bead embroidery, that will also bring up several books on that subject.

    A google search on these same terms will bring up some online instructions for you as well.  

    good luck !

    I really like "Knit and Crochet with Beads" by Lily Chin.  I think it's very thorough with techniques, it has a range of projects patterns that you can use to practice the techniques, and those projects are a good starting points for new project ideas.

      Thank you for replying.  I will try to get it.  I just discovered there were two methods - beaded knitting and bead knitting (pictoral).  The latter is the one I am interested in.
