With this technique you create extra stitches to shape your knitting. There are several methods, which have variations depending on which row you are working on, and which direction theincreased stitches need to slope in to create the effect you want. Your pattern will specify whichmethod to use.
Beading is a great embellishment but you must choose the right size of beads for the size of yarn you’re working with. Many beads are made for ﬁne threads and wires so the hole in the centre of the bead is too small for yarn. Adding lots of beads also makes the work much heavier, so bear this in mind.
