Can you add beads after knitting?
Start your knitting project and knit as far as you want to go before placing any beads. When you’re ready to put a bead in place, use a crochet hook that is smaller for tinier beads. Utilize a crochet hook conversion chart to measure correctly and view available sizes.
What size beads for lace weight yarn?
But for knitting and crocheting projects, we curated a selection of size 8 beads that we think work best with lace-weight yarns. There are at least 475 beads per container. (With beads, like wire, the larger the number–the smaller the bead.)
